Re: Has someone been on my computer?

Hi Neil,

Run the event viewer (click start/run, type eventvwr.msc and click ok). If
you have WinXP Home, check the security section for logon events. If you
have Pro, you would have had to previously enabled logging of this event,
however just poking around should tell you if someone was using the system.

Best of Luck,

I have suspicion that someone was on my laptop. Does XP have a way for me
check and see if someone was on my computer?
