Setup auditing as SIRBOUNTY commented.

Manage the eventlog afterwards:
EMCO EventLog Audit collects the eventlog from the computers on the LAN, to a database

It's also easy to tye this on the run line
secpol.msc
and then go to local policies, audit poilicies. You can enable sucess and failure on each type.

You can use GFI's SELM can notify you when certain event occur in your event logs,
