I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This is not possible as long as you do not use third party software.
Maybe you would like to take a look at products like Specops Deploy
The only logging the GPO are making, can be found on the client eventlog, but that is not what you want.
