How to track registry changes

Hello,
on one of the windows xp computers we change Mouse speed registry value under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse to 1 and when we logoff and logon back the value is changed back to 0. I think that we have no GPO restriction on this value.
How can I track what changes this value?
Thank you

Do you have any mouse software installed?
I discovered that the software (Logitech SetPoint) has a switch setting to determine whether pointer speed and acceleration are handled by the OS (registry settings) or by the SetPoint software. If I have it set to the SetPoint software, then it will force the registry settings to revert to default settings (medium speed and no acceleration) every time the SetPoint software starts up. If I have it set to OS control, then the registry settings can be properly adjusted.
