I would like to know if it is possible to retrieve data of keystrokes logged on a computer. If so, how? (without programs or hardware). Wife imputted info, but doesn't remember what it was. Can I go somewhere in Win XP and find that info just by a log of key strokes? Thank you for your help

If she can remember a particular word or phrase she typed in you may be able to find it by doing a file search and clicking on the advanced options.

There are programs that do this and are called key loggers but they are very dangerous and are security risks and should not ever be used. The best suggesting I have is to use Wordpad and when she saves something copy and paste the title that it was saved into Wordpad. This way she will have a list of everything she does and only has to remember the Wordpad file name.
