The security log shows that guest logged in at 11:45 AM. But the only possible suspect is my seventeen year old son who would have had to sneak out of school to log in. He says he didnt and I believe him
Of course I'm worried that its a hacker and I'm wading through the security logs trying to fgure out what happened.
1) Is there any easy way to analyze these logs? what should I be looking for?
2) I am in the process of going through my HJT logs, online av scans etc.
3) am I over reacting ? Microsoft has never made a reliable product. I've always been dissappointed with their stuff. Why should I start taking them seriously now. My guest acount is not password protected. Can it just start up by itself? Can my cats do it? I have one cat who likes to sit on top of my scanner/printer, and he is famous for starting copies etc. Could the cat hitting a scan button have done it?
Checking what the guest account did not reveal any activity, but a hacker could have have esaliy erased those logs I suppose.
Bottom line - should I be worried??? How robust is the windows logon process??
I'm using grisoft AVG, its updated, zone alarm free, tea Timer, spyware guard, spyware blaster
Please vote for hacker, cat, or microsoft and give your reasons.
