[Samba] Monitoring file Access

Is there anyway of finding out a computer accessing a particular file?

There is an exe file shared on the network, that keeps getting infected

I know if someone opens it, the lock will appear in smbstatus - but 
that's only if the user is still accessing it, which invariably means by 
the time the virus scanner picks it up, the user is long gone

Is there a way to monitor and log each access to this exe via samba?

Thanks for any help
