I've got a customer that want to keep a log of their files. What user accesses them, if they made any changes, even denied attempts at access. They are a high security business and need to keep things very very secure. What would you recommend?

I know windows has the functionality of keeping audits on this but I don't know how well presented, accurate and consistent they are.

Do you know of any freeware/cheap alternatives?
