Is there a piece of software I can run to catch a snooping co-worker on my computer?  I'm thinking of a program that can be activated when I leave my computer on for the night and come back the next day.

Thanks.

If you are running Windows, you don't need any extra software. Right click on "My Computer" and select "Manage". Expand the Event Viewer folder and left click on "Security". Find the time and date range you are curious about, and look for logon/logoff events by the username. If it says you logged on as yourself, you now have proof someone is using your account for accessing your PC!

>>>not logged off!!
You can clik on the windows key with L to lock the computer if you don't want to log off.
But if you are leaving your computer on then some programas like AV and other may use the system under your name and can't then say the difference if somebody or the system is using it.
It would be hard to leave your computer on and logged on to it and want to minoter who is on it. get you a webcam then.
