Not unless you had configured something to monitor such changes no.

Do you mean a software?
Or the Audit.

Will the inbuilt audit if enabled can get these details?
Mike ThomasConsultantCommented:
With software, Auditing does not go right down to that level. Quest i know make software that will monitor AD and log all changes made to accounts etc.

Nope you cant do that retrospectively.
And quest is expensive.

You can try Event sentry, which has a sarbanes oxley compliance module to track account changes.
Costs $85
