audit...

Is there a way I can check to see who has logged or tried to log into my computer from my terminal or try to login with my userid and password elsewhere on the network?

If you go to start | program | administrative tools | event viewer, and open the "security" log.

You may see "success audits".  These will show you when and who logs into your machine.

If you don't have any audits in here and you want to turn 'em on, then do this

1. Launch "Local Security Settings" from Control Panel
2. Expand Local Policies
3. Click "Audit Policy"
4. Double Click "Audit Logon Events"
5. Click the "success" and "failure" checkboxes

You'll now see entries in your security log in event viewer for "who logged on and when"
