can be done, but it is not a trivial task.
first thing, why wont you search in the mods and in phpbbhacks.com for something that might already exist?

if i would to do such a thing myself, i would try to track every time the sessions table is modified. this will give you a fair shot at tracking users activity.

Sorry for my confusion but what server logs?
This is a hosted server that I do not have direct access to Windows.

go to your hosting control panel and look for the logs there or ask your host about it.
