Hi,

Simple answer, no there isn't. You could try using some sort of sniffler that detects a CTRL + Alt + Del key stroke, but still, the user could be changing it's password..

Are u using Terminal server or plain old Client Server based??? If terminal server, there might be an option to do this. With Client Server based, it's not a functionality, but there might be a long shot of auditing file access (as i said a very very long shot...)

Else, i'm afraid you will need to buy 3rd party software (if one excists), because this against privacy regulations..
