Is there a way to tell who created shares on a server?  If so, how?  We have some rouge admins that share with the everyone group instead of authenticated users.

If you have auditing enabled you can search the event logs to see modifications made to objects (Audit object access).

I know its a shot in the dark but I use this on a couple file servers.

It does full auditing of file servers and shares. Its not free and wont give you any historical information, but if it is something you want to manage in the future - well worth the money!

Not necessarily. Create a filter and configure the following:

Logged: your timeframe you want query
Event sources: Microsoft Windows security auditing
Task category: File System

This should save you some time.
