I WANT TO MONITOR WHO ACCESS FILES ON THE NETWORK & WHO DOWNLOAD OR INSTALL ON THEIR SYSTEMS.

We have a 40 system network with 2000 server,  Is there software that will do this in a easie way.  I want to monitor if someone is browsing network folders, mapped drives and whethe someone is downloading or installing on their systems.  I think if I can send them an email letting them know That they did something on the network and I know about it, It may stop them from doing thinga that may be harmfull to the system.  And we won't have to really lock down net access etc.


Software or stuff I can do from the server

Thank you

You can enable auditing on the Windows 2000 Server by following the guide below

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q300549/

You must be aware however that this puts a load on the Server's Resources (CPU, RAM, disk access) so you may want to be cautious when implementing it. With respect to the installation of software.
Why do your users' have permission to do that...? You could lock that down from Group Policies i.e. don't allow access to install programs....unless a member of Administrators Group

i am not vary good at setting up group policy, but it should do all the thing you wish, for the most part atleast. an easy way  to make it so people cant install, is to make so thve to log onto the domain, i did this by disabling local user account on all workstations.

as far as monitoring the share you could also use performance logs and alerts MMC
