Directory Change notifications

I am setting up four folders in a directory that is accessed on our network. Is there a script or application that will notify multiple users when the files in the folders have been changed, modified, added, and possibly deleted. The notification could be through Exchange or from the system tray.
The files would be Windows .docx or .xlsx
The desktop os is Windows XP SP3 and thesServer is running Windows Server 2003 R2.
I looked at the solution to this ticket and it seemed like a good start:http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/System/Windows__Programming/Q_21401968.html
Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

Oddly enough, I have written an application that does exactly this called Directory Monitor: http://www.deventerprise.net/Projects.aspx

Works over a network, you can select the events you want to monitor, you can include/exclude files types to get only Word and Excel files, it notifies you via a system tray balloon, and allow you to execute an application when something changes (Command-line E-mailer also on the same page), totally works on Windows XP and Server 2003 OS.
