Someone appears to have broken into my admin account on my computer. Is there any way to look at a computer history so I can see what the last things done before I logged in were?


SOrry if there is in fact a category for this.

Understanding Event Viewer

Security log

The security log records events such as valid and invalid logon attempts, as well as events related to resource use such as creating, opening, or deleting files or other objects. An administrator can specify what events are recorded in the security log. For example, if you have enabled logon auditing, attempts to log on to the system are recorded in the security log.
