    I think if you are using XP it automatically updates the "timestamps" (or something similar) when folders/files were last accessed. You'd probaly have to manually check files/folders you suspect were used by the previous user

    A keylogger would do it. Probably better to password protect your desktop,or encrypt the folders in question. Let me guess sharing a computer eh?


    Link : Something like this program.

    In explorer (or folders)
    make sure the view is "Details"
    Right clik on the bar above where the folder etc are
    clik "more" (at bottom) and youll find tons more options

    there is a history button just above the address bar it looks like a clock that will show some of the things that have been viewed in the recent past.

    that only shows the last websites visited, not the last folders accessed

    Not not in Internet Explorer silly, go to a directory on your computer, and then go to history.
