Monitor a folder for user or system access – VBScript

I was approached a few days ago to develop a solution for monitoring access to a folder on a server (with auditing enabled). My first approach was to try and monitor the files last access time, but I found this to be somewhat unreliable. So my next method was to monitor the systems event logs. This proved much more reliable. If not a little too much at times.

Drop the code below in a .vbs file, execute and sit back and relax.
