are you looking for internet activity only or something else?

For internet activity, using a squid proxy would work pretty well with
something like SARG ( an app ) to parse the info into readable info.
This is unix apps, but I think windows has similar apps.

You can also boost up your logging capabilities via active directories
group policy. Capture whatever you want in there. The problem here is
getting the logs to a centralized location. I haven't found the perfect
way to do that yet...

If you want to spy on active sessions. Dameware works beautifully. The
built in windows one might be good, I only tried to use it once, but
from what I remember, it asks the users for permission to join the
session ( this would not be stealth by any means ).

If you're looking to monitor workstation to server activity you can use
the built in network monitor that comes with Windows.  Run it on the
server to watch and filter on the workstation you want to monitor.

To watch all traffic from a given workstation you will want to somehow
monitor their switch port.  This capability will depend heavily on what
types of switches you have in place.  You would forward a copy of all of
their port traffic to a "monitor" port that has a sniffer hooked to it.

On my network of Windows XP platform and I need to arbitrarily monitor
the activities of some of the workstations that are connected to Windows
2003 domain. I have domain admin previleges to the network and am also
aware of the local admin password. I understand that there are hundreds
of spyware softwares assigned for this purpose but I was looking for a
freeware, agentless deployment, monitoring thingy.

Anything of this sort out there?
