      Literally get at least a hundred of these a day...also along with event's 4672,4624,4634,4648(logon was attempted with explicit credintials)

      Looked around online and seems like this is a common theme with win8...doesn't matter which version and no one has any idea what it's for. These entries post usually after im already logged into my account. Mcafee antivirius plus is up-to-date, along with windows...did full scans and came back with nothing. If you look at additional info you see it's targeting my guest account which is disabled, also have logs for admin account and the account I use, along with some other weird domains like homegroup$


      any help or thoughts would be appreciated just trying to make sure this is just a bug microsoft needs to figure out!
