How can i see what has happened all day on my computer?

Hi!

Is there a program that i can use to "read" from the logfiles on my computer to see what programs that has been used and when they have been use and for how long they have been used and so on?

Thanks in advanced

Perhaps instead of seeing what is done on your computer simply lock it down when you are not around to watch found some nice parental control software that you might find helpful: Profil Technology, digital content analysis and filtering for families, companies and schools.

I think this one might be even better: http://www.nchsoftware.com/childmonitoring/index.html

It's on there own computers i would just like to see how much the play games.
Here in Sweden they get laptops at school and it's impossible to monitor what they are doing all the time and i don't want to either i would like to trust them. But the grades are not getting better even though they are doing their homework So that was what i would like to see if they are playing games or doing their homework.
