  1. Special Logon


    I think someone is snooping my computer. In the security event log, there is a 'special Logon' entry. Is there any way this log entry is generated by the system, or can this only be a person?

    My security event logger has now been changed so that the log is cleared when i reboot and log back in a normal user.

    Is this the snooper covering their tracks?

    thx.

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    The event logs you have provided seems to be the security logs that is generated when you login to your system. For more information on the event that was generated, you can check
    4672(S): Special privileges assigned to new logon.

    The Windows error logs will be located at Event Viewer > Windows Logs > System.

    Please follow the step below and check if it works for you.
