Yeah. He keeps unplugging it... I need both proof and I need to know when he does it so I can unplug HIM. So.. yeah. can anyone help me find a program that would either log the balloons in the taskbar, of just the internet bubble things, showing when it's been unplugged and such? Thanks!

I'm no genius, but if the computer is on I believe there is a way to check duration of which the machine has been on. Also, for connection to the internet, You can check duration of that as well... I dunno, maybe install surveillance camera's?

Is he doing this just because or do you only have one connection for the internet? Maybe look into getting a router

To access the Event Viewer, follow the appropriate steps below:

* In Windows 2000 or XP, from the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel. Double-click Administrative Tools, and then select Event Viewer.

Your firewall logs should also record when internet access is lost or activated.
