1st point of call on this is a proper Acceptable Use Policy. If they use 
business computers for non-work things, they go the normal disciplinary 
procedures, or even straight to dismissal under gross misconduct. (never 
under estimate the power of HR policy!).

next bit depends on how the desktops are configured and how/why they can 
do this..
