checking for shared folder access

i thinking of making a program that runs in the backgroud
and check for any user that is accessing my shared folder and let the program inform me.

i tried using NetSessionEnum . The tutorial that i found uses button to check everytime. I added a Do loop but it causes a high cpu usage.

example of my loop:

 Do While run 'start loop
       
       If currenttick + delay <= GetTickCount() Then
 
             [commands/check session]

            currenttick = GetTickCount()  'Reset the timer variable
        End If
       
        DoEvents
 Loop


i'm sure theres is a better way . Any idea ..??

Use a timer and put your code in the timer event.
