    howdy, and welcome to TSG. Best bet, especially if he wants to keep his job, is to get the company IT department involved. We won't be able to assist on company machines here, I'm afraid.

    No there isn't as it could have been done in the BIOS. All you can do is look at any system security logs which will have the entries sequentially with the timestamp - so time would suddenly jump backwards.
