While it is possible for an outsider to gain access to your wireless
network and start "messing" with your computer, its unlikely that
theyd be doing something as trivial as changing your history. It
sounds more like someone else (friends, family?) has been using your
computer. If I were you, id go ahead and log in to that persons user
name and password, and see who it is, this way youll know who has been
on your computer. Handy thing, autosave is.
