Enabling file access auditing on files could help you detect when a file has
been accessed.

Event log monitoring software such as, DUMPEL from the
Microsoft Windows Resource Kit, the free PSTools event log dump utility from, NTSYSLOG and/or might help you
monitor these logs and notify you when a file had been accessed.

File integrity monitoring software such as the free SIM from or
tripwire etc. could help you monitor certain files to notify when they had
been changed [though you'd still need auditing to tell who changed them].

However, the most secure thing is to avoid making someone an administrator
unless absolutely necessary.
