How to find out if my computer is being intruded

By alextubman ·
We are suspecting a family members ex husband of getting into her computer and getting her passwords. is there any logs or anyway to prove that this has happened?

Its a windows Xp computer, and I'm not sure of the firewall or anything, this family member is not very tech savy and lives too far away for me to constantly supervise like the rest of my family :)

First scan the system to make sure it doesn't have a root kit, see Michael Kassner's article on root kits at http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/10things/?p=416.

Then scan for viris and adware on the systems.

Then see Mike Mullins article on keystroke loggers http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/security/?p=291.

Then read this article on Intrusion Detection Systems for Windows http://www.auditmypc.com/freescan/readingroom/intrusion_detection.asp
