have you looked at filemon by sysinternals?  the sysinternals suite is free from Microsoft and will show you what files are being written in real time.  as for finding items you can use file indexing and search for dates.

hope this helps

If you need to check what application or patches or hotfix have been installed on the server than you can go to control and check for windows update and then find the latest updates and Program and Features to check which programs were installed recently.
Moreover in order to check each and every activity you need tool such as key logger which provides all the details such as what has been done on server.
