Audit Policy Settings for Windows XP

An Audit policy determines the security events to report to administrators so that user or system activity in specified event categories is recorded. The administrator can monitor security-related activity, such as who accesses an object, when users log on to or log off from computers, or if changes are made to an Audit policy setting. For all of these reasons, Microsoft recommends that you form an Audit policy for an administrator to implement in your environment.
