So I'd like to be able to identify an email or user name for an email that was logged into from my personal PC. I do NOT need to access the email, only tell who logged in. The web history was erased so I've done a few things
1. tried to restore but didn't have a restore point that worked.
2. downloaded an index.dat reader program
-Found the transactions and identified it as a hotmail account
-found the exact time frame from the date stamps
3. downloaded a File Scavenger program to see if what i was looking for was deleted, no luck


I'm out of ideas and would really like to find out who logged into my computer. Thanks for your help!

IE stores usernames and passwords in protected storage (if user has set the option to remember them). You can use PassView to view the saved usernames.

Just an extra question or 2 -

Was the account Hacked by an unauthorised user, or at least you think it was ?? Is this why you want the information ??

Please list the email account base NOT the actual email address, like - Yahoo / Gmail / Hotmail / Private Company / Etc / Etc -

Thank You -
