    Hi, I'm wondering if someone can tell me if theres a place on my computer I can look to see the time of day that someone was accessing certain files. I suspect someone I know has gotten into my msn, and then into my hotmail account. I looked at the internet history and there are certain files accessed that I dont remember opening, and if I knew the time of day they were accessed, it would really help.
    Thanks for your help.

    Unless you operate a forensic lab with appropriate tools and can gain access (with a search warrant) for ISP logs, I am of the opinion that the answer is basically no.

    If that person is using your computer on a different login, and the account is webmail only, you could login to your computer under that other person's username and check their internet history. However, if your browser shows other users activity on your login, this would be of no use. If that person is using another computer to access your account, they would have to have your account login. The only solution that I can think of is to change your email accounts, and set your computer to where each person had to login to their own session. If the account is local on a client, then you could also encrypt all messages that you have. Otherwise, Kiwiguy seems to have covered it.
