    i have Win XP Home and i use 2 difference desktops, Administrator for
    Administrator duties and Limited for e-mail and surfing the web each of which
    is password protected and after the screensaver comes on to re-enter you need
    to know the password. i believe that someone has logged into my computer and
    my question is- Does the computer keep a dated log when desktops are logged
    into? If so, how do i access this information? How many log ons would be
    listed?

    Thank you for the quick reply. I did read the article, was most
    helpful....i am assuming that the times my desktop name shows up is when the
    desktop was logged onto, is that correct (just want to be absolutely positive
    of what i see) and there are other logons by "user" Network service and
    Local service, what is that??

    Thanks again for all the help.
