    a not-so friendly coworker seems to like keeping tabs on when I arrive and leave work. Not sure why, but it's pissing me off and I'd love to find out when HE logs on in the morning. It's a PC (I can't be bothered trying to find Microsoft's "user friendly" forum's) and know some here can tell me the trick.

    so...anybody know where I can find said information?

    PC running Windows XP...

    Try the Event Viewer > Security Log ( it can be found by control panel > performance & maintenance > administrative tools > event viewer > system log )

    Hi,

    Smith & Wesson could also be helpful...

    My advice though, ignore the geek. Life's too short and way too precious for spoiling it on such battles.

    No offence intended...

    Event type 528 is a logon event, so you can filter the view on the Security log to only display those if there's a lot in there.

    Invasion of privacy

    Move to England..
    Unless they are specifically a sysadmin/or instructed by management you could sue them for invasion of privacy.
    If you were a female and they male you could get them for "sexual harassment"

    Well just search for "login" in the console application and deduce from there.
