    You may find this by filtering the security logs for event ID 624, which is a user creation.

    You may filter the security log within Event Viewer, or you could you use the following visual basic script file to list each user created (New Account Name), the user creating the user object (Caller User Name), the active directory attribrutes set for the user object and the date and time the user object was created (Time Generated).

    Just copy and paste the below into notepad and save as .vbs file extension.

    Insert the name of your domain controllers into the Computers Array (arrComputers) with a comma delimited to separate each domain controller, for this example I have presumed the domain controllers are renamed DC1, DC2, DC3 and DC4.

    On Error Resume Next
    Const wbemFlagReturnImmediately = &h10
    Const wbemFlagForwardOnly = &h20
    arrComputers = Array("DC1","DC2","DC3","DC4")
    For Each strComputer In arrComputers
       WScript.Echo "=========================================="
       WScript.Echo "Computer: " & strComputer
       WScript.Echo "=========================================="
       Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\CIMV2")
       Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_NTLogEvent Where Logfile = 'Security' and " _
                & "EventCode = '624'", "WQL", _
                                              wbemFlagReturnImmediately + wbemFlagForwardOnly)
       For Each objItem In colItems
          WScript.Echo "Message: " & objItem.Message
          WScript.Echo "Time Generated: " & WMIDateStringToDate(objItem.TimeGenerated)
    Function WMIDateStringToDate(dtmDate)
    WScript.Echo dtm: 
    	WMIDateStringToDate = CDate(Mid(dtmDate, 5, 2) & "/" & _
    	Mid(dtmDate, 7, 2) & "/" & Left(dtmDate, 4) _
    	& " " & Mid (dtmDate, 9, 2) & ":" & Mid(dtmDate, 11, 2) & ":" & Mid(dtmDate,13, 2))
    End Function
