    Activity Logging in Windows 8


    I would've used the search function but i wasn't sure what to search for. Thats why i thought its easier to ask a question.

    I don't know how to elaborate my question but i'll try. So please bear with me on this

    I was hoping if there is a software which tracks & logs our windows' activity ... all kinds of activity.
    - If i have watched a movie (or ran a media file), i wana know when i did that and which software did i use.
    - When did my PC shut down and when did i start it again the next day. (for the purpose of knowing if anyone have used my PC in my absence)
    - Recording my mouse clicks

    Basically i want everything to be logged, and i want to customize it the way I want. If there are huge logs, i want a search feature in such a software as well so.

    I don't know if you understand this question, but if someone does, please try to answer it.

    ^ Not really. To be honest, i want it for myself. To keep track of the things, especially those which i don't or forget to take account for.

    I can explain it further if you like but thats not really what i asked so, lets not derail from the subject

    Microsoft makes a program that does this but I totally forget the name of it. In fact, I just deleted it. But you don't want it, it is bloatware.
