Is there anything out there that will allow me to view file permission changes live. A bit like regmon and filemon monitor show you files/regkeys being created/edited/deleted.

Regmon is a Registry monitoring utility that will show you which applications are accessing your Registry, which keys they are accessing, and the Registry data that they are reading and writing - all in real-time. This advanced utility takes you one step beyond what static Registry tools can do, to let you see and understand exactly how programs use the Registry. With static tools you might be able to see what Registry values and keys changed. With Regmon you'll see how the values and keys changed..

Regmon works on Windows NT/2000/XP/2003, Windows 95/98/Me and Windows 64-bit for Itanium and x64.

You can find it Here.

Nice speech Foley but I don't think you answered his question!

Guess you could use cacls or similar to output permissions for files / folders to a text file before and after changes to see what's different but I don't know of any utility which shows changes in file permissions in real time...
