    to see when she was last logged in. I'm assuming you have a separate account for her. If you don't, then create one, and log out of yours when your not using the computer, or use the quick user switching.

    If you create her an account, by default the new account will NOT have administrator privilege, she can't install software. At least not into the systems Application directory.

    As long as you keep two accounts, she can't mess with your stuff.

    Oh, and learn how to share.
