You will need
-Windows (95 or higher)
Step 1: Open Notepad
To open notepad start Run
Then type in notepad and hit enter
Step 2: Code
Copy this into notepad
echo Boot at %Date% %Time%>>C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Desktop\record.txt
Step 3: Save
Now save this file as record.bat
Move this file to the startup folder.
Step 4: Test

It should say

Now whenever your machine is logged onto with or without your permission you will know.
