How do I find out when user XXX logged in+out on last Tuesday? Event log entry possible?

Can anyone tell me a way to find out when any user logged in and out from Windows XP like on last Wednesday? I think that there might be an event log entry written? But I dont see it? Is there anything that needs to be enabled like "User logon/logoff event log records" somewhere? Incase these kind of events are not logged then are there some different ways to check even log records when users log off? Thanks.

The events that you are looking for are logged in the security event logger file.

All you need to do is enable Auditing. For same go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy > Local Policies (expand it) > Audit Policy > Audit Account Logon Events and then enable both success and failure attempts. After that simply restart the pc.
