Hey guys! I have another person that uses my laptop every 1-2 months, and I just want to see how long this person was on for, (if applicable) and the time and date, (if applicable). I run a Dell Inspiron 6400 (you really didn't need that. But I run Windows XP, SP3. If you could help out that would be great!

If they have thier own user ID, you can also look at the Modified timestamp on thier Profile Folder. From there, you can look in the System/Application logs for entries until they just stop, for an idea of when they shut down.

Keep in mind, this is an alternative to the Security Log, if Auditing was not enabled.
