There are software used to monitor computer usage for kids, I guess you could use the same kind of software to monitor yours

Or if you fear that somebody must have installed the keylogger or any screen recording. Better to check the start up program by going to Start menu ---> Run  ----> type "msconfig" and press ENTER and you will have a windows. Go to Startup TAB. Uncheck any suspicious programs or you can save the screenshot and post it here so we can check.One more solution is to scan your computer with Anti Malware Bytes, it will detect if there is any keylogger program installed in your profile. Good luck.

You could check the

Event log - both application and System

Installed programs through add remove programs

services

Task manager Processes

You can look for things that don't look right and ask about them, however your question is very, very broad.  Are you worried about a virus? Someone in family accessing pc?  Confidential files? Browsing?

Have you ever seen this message in a process called "Interrupts" with description "Hardware Interrupt"?

"The select process is running in a different account than Process Explorer and so may fail to run or behave differently when restarted under Process Explorer's credentials.
Continue with process restart ?"

Why not simply lock your workstation, only an administrator will then be able to log you out.

DistillingExpertsAuthor Commented:
Sure?

frankkyCommented:
Affirmative, try locking your workstation.

You'll get a message saying (this is from memory):

The workstation is in use and can only be unlocked by ...username or an administrator.

What about a hacker trying to enter it from the common network?

frankkyCommented:
Having a good anti-virus  and firewall is also important.

You should also try to run malwarebytes from malwarebytes.org to detect spywares/malwares that could be on your computer that A/V's don't always detect.
