Hi,

I think –well, I am sure, actually– somebody at my workplace has been reading my documents, snooping into my files, etc. Now, I would like to know how that person or persons did it, but more importantly, which files they read. Is that possible? Is there any procedure I should follow to determine that, any software I could download? My attitude and strategy from now on will change according to that.

I have a Dell with a Windows 2000 OS, and though I am the administrator of that computer and several other people are only Power Users, I know they read my files. There’s no network.

This is a very important issue for me: I would appreciate any answer.

put all your sensative files in a specific folder, now right click that folder and do properties now go to the security tab. and make sure that you are the only person with permissions to the folder and make sure you have full control. if you want to be extra carefull make sure that you deny all permissions to all other users (do not do this by using the everyone group...as y ou are part of the everyone group)..
