Nothing like that exists but you can find out where they were on the web by searching temp or tmp files. At least you can see what sites were visited. You can also have a look at Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features to see if any new programs were installed and checking you browser for new toolbars.
May be a good time to change or add a password to the computer.
Is there an issue you need help with?

if you go to control panel / programs and features then set the view to details.

then click at the top where it says "installed on"

Name:  2011-09-16_0958.png
Views: 4

then it will give you a window with a calendar

and you can select the day you think anything was installed also you can check the boxes for changes over the week, month etc.
also check the browser history they may have deleted their browsing activity but maybe not,

Baxxter, I think your out of luck figuring out what was installed and then uninstalled and ran ccleaner.

One thing is that you can look at the programs directories and maybe the uninstall did not remove the directory that was created when he installed some software.
Just a chance..

As was said earlier, I recommend a password change immediatly.

Have you checked your Internet history? That's probably the easiest way to find out what websites he went on, unless he cleared the history.
If he did, just check your 'temp files' like everyone else has suggested.

Your best bet IMO would be to do a System Restore to a point before your "friend" started to play with your computer, and change your logon password ... then have a long talk with him about using your computer ....

This will show you how to do a System Restore to restore your Windows 7 system files to an earlier point in time. It's a way to undo system changes to your computer without affecting your personal user files, such as e‑mail, documents, or photos.
