How and when we find out if someone has used your computer

Hi friends, in today's tutorial we will see how can we find out when and if someone uses your computer.
For this we use a portable application (no installation required) called WinLogOnView that gives us the login information that had log on our computer.
WinLogOnView gives us information about:
- Logon ID
- The username with which you logged in
- The domain
- Computer name
- day, month, year and time at which you logged in (Logon Time)
- day, month, year and time at which the delegation was made (Logoff Time)
- how long the user has been logged in, practically the time the computer was turned on
WinLogOnView is a very useful app for parents who wish to supervise children using the application they may make a child's idea of ​​time spent at the computer and can decide whether to impose restrictions on its use. Also with the help of WinLogOnView parents can find out if offspring observed time restricting computer use because why not admit it, children are very playful and sometimes we tend to lie.
WinLogOnView is a useful application only parents but everyone has doubts and wants to check if someone is using your computer or laptop in his absence.
Among the interesting features of this application and we find:
- the possibility to export the report in an HTML file
- you can find information about the logs made on other remote computers, the condition being to have the Remote Desktop function active on the respective computers for which you want to find out the information.
- you can scan the Windows hard drive of any computer or laptop to find out information about the latest logins and their usage period.
The manufacturer's page you can download and Romanian language for this application has been translated by Nicolae Oprea.
That said, I invite you to Aveda izionati tutorial exactly how and when we can find out if someone uses the computer in our absence.

    Hello, and sorry to post this comment in a box just not appropriate!
    I would like to buy a home / office laptop and I was thinking about “Lenovo 15.6 Laptop” Essential B590, Intel® Pentium® B980 2.4GHz, 8GB, 1TB, GeForce 610M 1GB, Black ”but I am a little skeptical, I heard that that lid, the part with the display is not exactly resistant, a guy in the comments saying something like "Fragile lid, it bends very easily and the display can crack". Now I ask you for advice on this, what do you think and the other laptops are the same, if they are not still worth buying with this money, should I have problems with this?
    Thank you for your help!

  5. I prefer a good keylogger, besides the information of this application, the keylogger shows you almost everything that happened to you while you were away from it: the games played, the Internet pages accessed (very important to find out the "field" of interest of the child), what was typed on the chat or in the browser, even the passwords used. You have captures in text and jpg format, you can set to send reports to your e-mail address, etc.
    Do you older tutorial about kgb free, which is more useful than this app.

  6. Hello. It doesn't show anything to me. I was in Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Event Viewer - Security and only one thing appears:
    __________________________________________________________________________________
    Details
    Product: Windows Operating System
    ID: 517
    Source: Security
    Version: 5.0
    Component: Security Event Log
    Symbolic Name: SE_AUDITID_AUDIT_LOG_CLEARED
    Message: The audit log was cleared
    Primary User Name:% 1
    Primary Domain:% 2
    Primary Logon ID:% 3
    Client User Name:% 4
    Client Domain:% 5
    Client Logon ID:% 6

    Explanation
    This event record indicates That the audit log has been cleared. This event is always Recorded, regardless of the audit policy. It is Recorded Even if auditing is Turned off. The audit log SHOULD be saved in a file Before deleting. The practice of always saving copies of audit logs is good for catching fraudulent users. A fraudulent user with sufficient privileges CAN delete the audit log as a way of erasing evidence of tampering with the computer systems and files. Lack of a backed-up audit log Unauthorized year Will help trace user. Once deleted, lost UNLESS year audit log is a copy was made and saved Before deleting.

      you can see who uses the internet if you Roter apple in settings default address 192.168.1.1 and there looking information should appear WiFi and who's connected on it and you can block your ip or mac mail

      • cristi said

        see Mac intruder (so can only filter to block from router) must see him exactly when connected. ip router assign it when you connected (if not set to allocate a specific IP for a Mac). put a better security. are tutorials router security.

    if you change the CPU then you have to keep in mind the same RAM to A frequent Aiva
    or how did you say FSB
    then you must make sure that you have properly installed CPU Coolers especially as you put and thermal compound
    leptopuri know that some just do not show some information after that neither the BIOS nor Windows
    nor Everest or Aida
    You do not know how else to say and I want to find out more

      No straw DC's CPU GHz Celeron 2.00 sees ok just go on low speed cache is bad, and I put it on the PC and look good at the speed values ​​and a cache 20000 Mb / s and the laptop placed 3000 and sees something Mb / s dc That looks like and that's not the same. Some say it's the charger but I do not. Does Ali chipset + You Rs200mb and hard work still has 385mb / s memory speed in memtest even an athlon to 1.8 has 400mb / s and only has mean latency 1 300 pentium-400ns and he's had 4ns p100 somewhere.

  14. Adrian, I use Curr Ports… when I turn on the PC, this application shows me perfect many, many reports that go to locations in China, USA, Holland, Germany. I know that Hide IP does that… and, I am confused, please tell me, could these reports be the result of a Key Logger sneaked into my PC? or just the result of the activity of those Cookies ??
    You can send a picture of my monitor these reports tell me your opinion?
    Regardless of your decision, I thank you and apologize for the inconvenience!….

    As you probably noticed from our tutorials when we go through their installation, most of them have the option "Send anonymous statistical data". When you open your computer, all applications start background services that either check for new software versions or send anonymous statistics to the manufacturer.

  21. Hi,
    Is there a program that shows us how long an employee has been on the internet…? Does the employer have the possibility to follow from his PC what employees do?
    Thank you

    • Adrian Gudus said

      The employer can restrict employees' access to various social networking sites by different methods but in no case is beautiful, ethical, moral to spy on employees, collect logs, violates the right to privacy and if anyone finds out that you do this job, I get ugly!

      • Mon ami, do you ask the employer you want privacy on a PC that is not yours and you're using (in theory) only in the interest of the company.

        Congratulations on the site!

  22. Dear Adrian,
    I gave remote access of knowledge (computer) to install a program.Crezi I can now see that my activities on the computer?

I mean, to be able to find out how many hours the motherboard, video card, processor, ram was used, how long they have been used since their purchase until now ? I would like a software if you know something like "sentinel hard drive" what it looks like there, how many starts / stops it had, how many hours it was used, etc.… do you know something like the processor or motherboard? Thanks !

  25. Hi, please help me with some information. I bought a laptop from someone, tell me please, that one can know now everything in my computer? For a piece of time, I can read emails from another id de mess. Thank you!

    • Adrian Gudus said

      If that has installed a keylogger, yes, the one from whom you bought can receive logs (history / records) with what you do on that laptop. That unless you formatted the hard drive and have reinstalled Windows (which is recommended to do when buying a laptop from another owner)
      The problem with Yahoo mail has been explained and discussed in two other older tutorials here on the site.
      Search with the search box on the top right "what do we do when we can no longer log in to yahoo messenger" then search and "how to prevent the loss of yahoo account"

  26.

    Am I being controlled elsewhere? ”“ How can I solve this problem? ”Thank you in advance.

    Hi, I don't have much knowledge of English and I'm not very good at computer science (beginner), I just wanted to know if someone logs on to my laptop, etc. I downloaded the WinLogview application (the one you mentioned Adrian) and it really is super useful only that it shows me on each row starting with: Logon ID etc and at the last one which is Logon Type and under it put Interactive (2) …… .nu I know what interactive 2 put in a brace means. I think it would be 2 computers logged in at the same time ?? I say this because I feel like I'm being chased by the police or what do I know ??? And one more thing, when I log on to Facebook and go to the option to see where I (I) log in from and I see a completely different county at least 5-6 hundred km away from where I am… . is it normal or? Thank you in advance
