I'd say setup a Terminal Server for them with remote access.  All work
would then be done on your internal Terminal Server and not at home.
SSL-VPN's help out here as well.  I have implemented this for my end
users and it works splendidly.

Having problems with USB keys?  You can lock it down by disabling the
files via Group Policy, same with CD Burners and Floppies.

Of course, you'll UM's support, an Acceptable Usage Policy and a budget.

But to your question:

        |  
        |  Hello list,
        |  A lot of collaborators in the company do some office 
        |  work (word, excel, PowerPoint) at home or on "public 
        |  computer".
        |  Since some of there work information is 
        |  confidential, I was wondering what kind of 
        |  information (if no key loggers are installed,) could 
        |  be reviled ( there always save there document on a 
        |  usb stick,) after there have done with they work. I 
        |  know for example in the recent files menu, you can 
        |  find the name of the last accessed files. But is 
        |  they some temp files of the document that are stored 
        |  one the hard drive.
        |  The real Question would be: what kind of information 
        |  could someone retrieve from the computer after the 
        |  collaborators work is done and saved on a usb stick. 
        |  And what would there need to do  for the computer to 
        |  be completely cleaned of all information about they work.
        |  Thanks for all help
        |  Steven Meyer
