If you are the Administrator and users are remotely logged into your system, is there a way for you to see what those users see?

Perhaps you are looking for Configure Remote Control of Remote Desktop Services Sessions :

You can monitor the actions of a client logged on to an RD Session Host server by using remote control from another session. Remote control allows you to either observe or actively control a client session. If you choose to actively control a client session, you will be able to input keyboard and mouse actions to the session. You can warn a client that you want to remotely control their session by choosing to display a message on the client that asks permission to view or take part in the session.

The article applies to Windows Server 2008 R2, but I have seen a similar mechanism already used since Windows Server 2003 R2.

In Computer Management | Shared Folders you should be able to see the users logged in and what files they are currently accessing (select Shares, Sessions and Open Files)
