Thanks - What a good suggestion!

I have used WebMin but have always applied the tool to servers etc. not my
desktop box. I am very appreciative of all the suggestion however I am
appropriatly lazy when it comes to admin functions i.e. automation and
universal tools etc.

I will give WebMin a try and hopefully catch my team members trying to crack
my box.
