file audit question

My goal is to have a failed security log to post in the event viewer when someone tries to access a folder or file they do not have access to.  I enabled 'failed' file audits for the 'everyone' group.  I set the option 'List/Folder Read Data'.  Shouldn't this simply place an entry in my security log when someone is denied access to a folder or file?  I'm getting all kind of failed security logs when people are successfully accessing files.  Why is it logging successful attempts to files and folders?

thanks

you need to enable auditing in GPO as well as on individual folders that you want to audit...

When you say 'enable auditing in GPO', do you mean 'policy auditing'???
