    If you think someone turned your computer on, and was sitting in front of it poking around, you can at least see if it was booted up by someone by checking the windows logs. This won’t tell you what files someone viewed, but you can at least see that.

    If you’re concerned about “hacking” make sure you do a virus/spyware scan. If you have files you don’t want people to see, consider using a disk encryption solution like trucrypt: http://www.truecrypt.org/
