Wink Someone can see what I am sending to internet server?

My co-workers do not care about security issues when they use computers. Almost all PCs in the office are infected by more than one virus. They believe they can fix the viruses using Antivirus. Actually, I've never seen anyone got damaged serious damages on the data. Maybe, that's why they do not consider to change their habits in the PCs.
I would like to show them that I can see what they are do on internet and even their passwords. Theoretically speaking, I know this can be done in my office unless they connect to secure sites. Hopefully, this demonstration make them stop connect download sites. Is there any way I can do this? Thank you for helps.

This is basic human nature. People won't consider any change in the way they act until they do not experience direct consequences of their actions. With other words - until they will suffer because of their actions. I mean - data loss, financial loss, stolen private data ... and so on. They won't change nothing no matter what you show or tell them. The best you can do that you won't act like that.
Sorry that I am so pessimistic, but I tried that one myself many times before.
