I have a user who thinks he shut his computer off on Friday and when he came in Monday, his computer was logged in. I need to check if his login mane was used on Sunday. He is a domain user on a 2000 - 2003 domain. He has no security logs on his computer. On the domain controller there are security logs with messages for Sunday for various things. The problem is that there are many user names with these messages for Sunday. No one was here on Sunday. Are these messages normal even though no one is logging in and out? How can I check to see the last time this user logged in?

User Logoff:
       User Name:      userA
       Domain:            ABC
       Logon ID:            (0x0,0x387ED1D)
       Logon Type:      3

Special privileges assigned to new logon:
       User Name:      userA
                Domain:            ABC
       Logon ID:            (0x0,0x38AB692)
       Privileges:      SeChangeNotifyPrivilege
                  SeBackupPrivilege
                  SeRestorePrivilege
                  SeDebugPrivilege

look the the follwing URL you have a complete list of all security event IDs, look for event 528 to see when this user logged on, and event 538 to when he logged off.

There are 538's in the log for my name for yesterday (Sunday) and I was not here - no one should have my password - so how would there be successful log on and offs by themselves. My computer was left logged in over the weekend. Does kerberos renegotiate by itself if you are logged in and so to say relog in and out which would be logged, or did someone steal my username and password (which I would say is very unlikely)
