Have found this which might help
mrtstub.exe in General Security Discussion

If you think someone uses your laptop without your permission why not protect it with a password?
Or CCTV

Hello Jagjr, welcome to Seven Forums!



The suggestion by Mitchell is a good one; here's a tutorial on that subject, have a look at it at the link below; then have a look at the second tutorial as a safety precaution.

My computer has a 24 AlphaNumeric Password with capitals.
I locked my computer this morning and found it unlocked when i came back. No one knows my password.

Are there activity logs?

Yes. Right click on the my computer icon, select manage, go to event viewer -> windows logs -> security. Look for logons attempted with explicit credentials.

However, unless you've already enabled audit logging for login failures, you won't know if there were multiple attempts. To enable audits for logins:

start -> gpedit.msc
computer configuration -> windows settings -> local policies -> audit policy
Double click on audit logon events, enable failure (and also success, if you want)

Log off, enter a bad password, then a good password, and check your security logs. You'll see the failure (and success, if you enabled that in your audit log).
