XP print log
I'm trying to find a log of all files printed, on Win XP.
I've looked in the system log: control panel> admin tools > event viewer

Is this local printing or network printing??
I think you will need a 3rd party software for what you are asking.......unless the machine is acting as a printserver....the network connection and print job can be logged....

Dont know how much info it would give you though???
a quick google search should give you what you need.
