Auditing file access or user logins on Sharepoint
We have a simple Sharepoint 2010 site running hosting some documents. We would like to be able to see when a specific user has logged in or when a document was last viewed/downloaded. Is this possible? I'm quite a sharepoint n00b

If you enable the SharePoint usage analysis, you can get all of the data from there without having to do anything extra.
Getting started with SharePoint 2010 site analytics and usage statistics | Yaroslav Pentsarskyy on SharePoint Development
Alternatively, if you really want a huge amount of detail, you can look at using CardioLog instead. I've only used it briefly in the past but was quite impressed.

That is perfect, only problem is I can't get the farm configuration wizard to appear in the configuration wizards page
From googling it doesn't look like I'm the only one with the problem, apparantly to do with permissions although I'm using the same account that I used to install SP and running the main configuration wizard as some have suggested doesnt help

Never mind, it looks like it was already setup for some reason, so I can see stats. I was hoping for a bit more detail (such as last logon) but this is fine for now. Thanks

You can change IIS to full logging. Then analyse that with your favourite log software.
Beware though, it makes big files!

For more detail you can use the free edition of CardioLog - SharePoint Usage Reports, SharePoint Reporting - CardioLog
I probably sound like a shill for them, but I know when I used it I was very impressed at the detail it provides.
