user1. That's the user name. Does not seem like you have very good user names in place though as that won't give you any info. I suggest you change the user accounts to something more usable, like an actual name.

Pretty scary dude.

Anyway, check this location:
Right click on my computer and select manage.
Select event viewer then windows logs then security. From there you can see who logged in.

Note, you can also select "shared folders" and then "open files or sessions to find out if someone is connected.
