Advice Needed: General Forensics Analysis

Hopefully I am posting this in the correct topic.
I have been doing technical consulting for a
number of years now, primarily doing database
development, small business networking and
web development.

Recently, one of my clients, for whom I had
developed a custom customer contact
system, was forced to fire one of their
employees. I don't know the details of why this
individual was fired, but I gather there are
some fairly serious allegations.

I was asked by this client to do an analysis of
the fired employee's workstation computer.
They would like me to: recover any emails
which might have been sent, do an anlaysis of
recent web activity, and recover anything else
which might potentially be part of a legal case
against this employee if such becomes
necessary in the future.

I have never been asked to do such an
analysis before, and although I'm fairly
technically savvy, I'm not sure how to
approach this assignment.

I'm hoping to get some advice regarding what I
should be looking for, any utilities (best if they
are free) which might help me with such an
analysis, and what areas of the system might
contain the information I'd be looking for.

The computer I'm looking at has Vista
Business Edition loaded, and Internet Explorer
and MS Office are the primary applications

Any advice or suggestions would be greatly
appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help!

Anybody able to help me with this? I'll examining the computer
this morning, and I have to admit I'm not getting very far. Any
thoughts or ideas would be appreciated!

Thanks! --e
