For logging what uses access on a system I'd recommend using GPO's on the workstations itself.  You don't need a Domain to enable them.

Just open up the MMC (Start -> Run -> mmc) console and add the Group Policy snap inn.

Here's the path in the GPO snap inn:

Local Computer Policy -> Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Policy -> Audit Policy

Here's a link to descibe the options within this Snap in:

This can keep track of new/open/changed/deleted files as well as logins and other user based events.


Hope this helps some.
