I have a hunch my boyfriend checks my history and reads my messenger chat logs. How can I see which folders he opened and where he went?

That is a coincidence, the same question was posted a few weeks ago by a college lecturer who thought the students had been looking at his computer whilst he was on a coffee break, to pre-read the exam questions he had set.
If you have to check up on him, to see what he has looked at, I presume he will not be your boyfriend for much longer.
Go Control Panel, Administrative functions, event viewer, applications and Office Sessions if appropriate.
Of course if he is really clever he will have cleared all the logs.

My Event Viewer 's application has no Office Sessions - only unintelligible (to me) logs of presumable errors?

Thanks for the relationship advice :) I have to be sure he has been reading chat logs before I can ask him why!

My event viewer only has the first four items - Application, Security, System and Internet Explorer. WTH! Can you tell me how I can get the rest?

Thanks!

try here...
it would be much simpler to just log off your account (assuming your account is password protected) and have him log onto the guest account...
