One quick question,

how do i log an application start (start/end time), to know which app is started at what time?

Event Viewer -App Log, doesn't seem to do that.


Thanks

Hi view

If you have Windows XP Pro, you can enable auditing for file access (you'd audit access of the program's main executable, most likely). Have a look at the Microsoft Knowledge Base article for that --- http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;310399&Product=winxp

If you have Windows XP Home, you'd have to purchase third-party tracking software. I suppose it's possible an open-source or shareware tool might exist. The retail tools that do this sort of thing can be pricey.

Large installations using servers can track this sort of thing easily, using the builtin tools [Microsoft's SMS servers do this, for example].

Best of luck
