Find out Who Is Using Your Computer and When In Windows 7

In this post, I am going to show you how to find who is using your computer and for how much time. I can find at least three reasons why this can be very useful:

  • You want to control the usage of your computer; maybe your children spend too much time in front of it—even when you are not home.
  • You are running a server, with this I mean a computer that cannot be shutdown, and you want to know if it’s up and running.
  • You want to control your own usage—sometimes is very useful to have statistic about this.

Some might say that using Parental Controls is easy to block the access to a computer at some hours, but we are not trying to block anything.

If you have read in some of my previous posts you have noticed that for many tasks you have the programs installed by default with your Operating Systems. This post is written for Windows 7 and I am going to use Task Scheduler to achieve the goal.

Launch Task Scheduler

Press WinKey, and search for Task Scheduler.

Click Task Scheduler.

Create The Task

Click Task Scheduler Library.

On the right pane select Create Task and select the General tab.

If you are using it on a server check Run whether user is logged or not.

On Triggers tab, click New:

Select On a schedule:

Selecting daily, and repeating the task every 5 minutes for 1 day makes the application run forever (which is what we want.)

Now we have to specify the action we want to start

The program is a command prompt, we can launch the program using cmd. As arguments we type:

/c echo %username%,%time%,%date% >> UpTime.csv

In start in we select the path what we want that the task store the information in our case:

c:\windows\

Now we only have to open to see the information:

And see the result:

The name of our user is User (sorry for the simplicity.) Even though the task is very useful, it has one drawback, have you noticed it? More importantly, do you know how to improve that

Microsoft: 6 Million downloads of IE9 beta in two weeks

Microsoft said on Friday that since the launch of Internet Explorer 9 beta, two weeks ago, the software giant has recorded six million downloads.

Internet Explorer 9 beta made its debut on September 15 to a fanfare of Gorillaz appearances and anticipation of Microsoft’s new look browser. The next generation browser has received a warm welcome from tech enthusiasts, developers and the media. The browser has been so popular that it has grabbed 0.25% of browser market share in just two weeks.

“Two weeks after IE9 Beta launch, we continue to see great reactions from our customers. As of today, IE9 Beta has been downloaded 6 million times, which is two and half times what we saw with IE8 Beta in a similar timeframe”, wrote Ryan Gavin, Senior Director of Internet Explorer Business and Marketing.

Microsoft has targeted developers in a heavy way with Internet Explorer 9. IE 9 takes advantage of the power of the GPU for all page rendering and developers can exploit this using CSS, DHTML and javascript. A new JS engine (codenamed Chakra) is also built into Internet Explorer 9 with greater interoperability and standards support all round. Features such as rounded corner CSS support are now built in.

Microsoft has also introduced broader support for HTML5 in IE9 through its new script engine. Microsoft recently performed W3C Web Standards tests on IE9, including HTML5, SVG 1.1 2nd edition, CSS3 media queries, CSS3 borders & backgrounds, CSS3 selectors, DOM level 3 core, DOM level 3 events and DOM level 2 style. Microsoft’s IE9 is the first and only browser to deliver full hardware acceleration of all HTML5 content. Other competitors, including Mozilla and Google, are planning select hardware acceleration but at the moment Internet Explorer 9 wins hands down.

Microsoft, with the help of W3C, performed a total of 2,138 tests on a variety of browsers. Internet Explorer 9 scored above 90% in average across all tests, while every other browser, except Safari 5 and Chrome 5 didn’t come close to scoring 90% or above in any of the test categories. Microsoft is expected to issue a second beta of Internet Explorer 9 at its Professional Developers Conference in October later this month. Internet Explorer 9 is expected to become broadly available in early 2011.

Intel® vPro™ Technology

Notebook and desktop PCs with Intel® vPro™ technology enable IT to take advantage of hardware-assisted security and manageability capabilities that enhance their ability to maintain, manage, and protect their business PCs. And with the latest IT management consoles from Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) with native Intel vPro technology support, IT can now take advantage of enhanced features to manage notebooks over a wired or corporate wireless network- or even outside the corporate firewall through a wired LAN connection.

PCs with Intel vPro technology integrate robust hardware-based security and enhanced maintenance and management capabilities that work seamlessly with ISV consoles.¹ Because these capabilities are built into the hardware, Intel vPro technology provides IT with the industry’s first solution for OS-absent manageability and down-the-wire security even when the PC is off, the OS is unresponsive, or software agents are disabled.²

Security, multiplied

The hardware-based capabilities of Intel vPro technology improve network traffic filtering and isolate clients under attack. Automatic security agents’ verification and immediate remote restoration enhance your preventive security efforts. And with reliable remote power-up functionality, you can deploy off-hours patches faster, speeding up patch saturation by up to 56%.³ Additionally, the hardware-assisted antivirus protection of Execute Disable Bit protects your PCs from certain viruses that use buffer overflow attacks.

Protecting virtual environments against rootkit and other attacks, Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT)Filetype/Size: PDF 83.1KB³ offers extra protection on PCs with Intel vPro technology and built in Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT).ξ Including an industry-standard TPM 1.2 which can be used by third-party software to store keys and other protected data, Intel TXT enables the PC to boot software into a truest state and also helps protect the integrity of the virtual machine.

Share Point 2010
