    Does W2K, Pro or Server offer some sort of history of logins on a given PC? I have a user who would like to know if anyone has been logging onto her PC while she is away, and using her name and password to do it. She is running W2K Pro. Is there anything like this? Thanks for the help.

    You will need to setup an audit policy on the machine. This will write a notification to the event log.

    Start\Settings\Control Panel\Administrative Tools\Local Security Policy\Local Policies\Audit Policy\Audit Account Logon Events

    When you get to there, check the two boxes for Success and Failure. Reboot your machine and login and check the event viewer.

    This is for a local machine.
