    Ok well a friend is staying over at my house for quite a while and he uses the computer also, but i want to make sure he isnt doing anything more than that..(IE. looking through my documents/folders...all that stuff)

    So is there a way i can see when a folder was last opened, or anything similar to that at all? I just want to know if he goes through any documents or files of mine.
    I use Tiger 10.4.11

    (Also i know that locking a folder would be an option, but yet it defeats the pupose of knowing if he goes through any files or whatnot)

    Set up a guest account on your Mac, so he can't get access to your user files.

    Hmmmm, are you trying to catch him or prevent him?

    The guest account is the best option for prevention
    Catching him is another story

    Careful what you wish for though

    I'd just stick with the guest account. If you can keep him out of your files, does it really matter?
