Guy’s is there any way or programme that can log the Time and Date a computer was turned on and off?

Not looking for a keylogger at this stage, just looking at “Unauthorised Use”. ;)

The built in Event Viewer will display everything.

You should get some indication of those times in Event Viewer viewer already.

Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Event Viewer/ Application and System logs

Add a line to autoexec.bat

echo I'm alive and it's %DATE% >> mylogfile.log

Windows ME--:eek: Arrrwwww Run for the hills :lol:

ME doesn't have the same sort of log system. You can tell it create a boot log but thats not automatic.

That sounds good, can you add time to it?

Don't have a ME machine to test (or any MS OS atm :lol:).
test the output at a command prompt, IIRC the environment variable %DATE% on XP included the time, or maybe add %TIME% .... YMMV & Google is your friend

Edit: Just ssh'd to XP at work.
c:\Documents and Settings\Me>echo %DATE%_%TIME%
