I want to track when a user logs on and when they log off, this is just for learning so I will be doing the log on and off for John Doe account, and then I want to see the logs....
I would also like to see when the admin or someone with delegation rights creates anew account or modifies an account.

Never really done it before, while I have the general idea of how to and to look in the event log I don't exactly know how, can someone please walk me step by step done some reading, I'm missing something.

You need to enable the Security auditing from group policy and then the logs will be appears in Event Logs>>Security Event. The step by step procedure can be found here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc758201(v=ws.10).aspx

Hope this helps

I'm a bit confused . I did read up on the link you send me, but  why local policies I want to do it so when a user on the domain logs on and off would that not be done on the domain Group Policy?
