Hello, after downloading a bunch of software recommended by this site's staff to help keep my computer safe... but my fellow residents of the house I stay in all use this computer and will a lot of times delete files and applications that belong to me or that I've downloaded (because they believe the computer will go faster -_-)... so the actual question is:

How do i check what processes/files were deleted or modified in my computer in a set time period in the past (such as 1 day ago)?

(sorry if I posted in the wrong section, I scrolled down the list of topics on the forum main page and this seemed the most applicable to my problem) >.>

For modified files, you can just use windows search feature. . . one of the advanced options is to target files modified in the past X amount of time.

For deleted files. . . if the recycle bin has been emptied you'd probably need to use a file recovery utility, and hope the memory location of the deleted file hasn't been written to already. There are some free file recovery utilities out there

Here's one http://www.recuva.com/
