Windows 7: Is there ANY WAY to see the history of every action in the past week?

Is there ANY WAY to see the history of every action in the past week?

I sent my laptop to get something fixed and when I got it back I found a hell of a lot of personal folders accessed by the sickos who 'fixed' it.

I'm disgusted beyond words, just... please, I NEED to know if they copied anything out of my laptop or bluetoothed anything out of it - there were a LOT of personal pictures and videos they snooped into - is there some kind of action history saved anywhere on windows 7 that would allow me to see if they took anything and what they took if they did?

Windows 7 Enterprise x64 SP1 Version 6.1 Build 7601

Press start and type computer then press enter.
this will open up computer management.

now under System tools node expand event viewer node.
now expand Windows logs node.
finaly click on Applicatin node.

now in top left corner click on Action and select filter current log
now in this dialog in drop down menu of loged label select last 7 days
fill in additional info and click OK.
now when you click on any log you'll get details bellow computer management window.

Do so for every node like Applications and services node, filter them and read detais as long as you want.

It's hard to find what what you want there cos a lot of info but I think this is the only option to check events in past 7 days.

Hope this help

Thanks but everything in that log pretty much goes over my head! D:

Might be something though... Any idea what keywords I should be looking for to indicate something being copied or sent to an external device?

Oh and while we're at it, is there any way to see what videos were played on windows media in the past week or so?

Constant BSODs the past week or so
I've been getting a BSOD or two almost every day for the past week or so. I tried upgrading to the new Nvidia driver and it seemed to make it worse so I rolled it back to the one I had. I followed the directions on this site to properly install the drivers so that I wouldn't have any conflicts...

BSOD about 3-4 times a week. Not specific to any particular action
As mentioned the crash isn't specific to anything I'm doing. It just happens sometimes. I've even tried forcing it by using the driver verifier and running as many online videos/games as possible and couldn't get it to happen. Sometimes I'm literally just reading a document and it crashes. I should...
