  1. To anyones knowledge does windows XP pro keep the login history of ALL accounts (including guest and administrator) anywhere, and if so is it possible to modify/delete this?

    It does, but not by default. If you want it to, open "Local Security Policy" in Administrative Tools and I think it is under audit (sorry, not logged in as Admin at the moment). These are then logged in Event Viewer under security. To delete them, you'd have to clear the entire security log. (And from memory, it logs in security when you clear the security log!)

    Thanks, I don't think it was exactly where you said, but it was close enough. Also, it does log when you clear the log, which is kind of *****ic if you ask me.
