    I reset the domain administrator password a few days ago and now I see the
    following event occurring every 5 minutes in the security event list.

    Event Type: Failure Audit
    Event Source: Security
    Event Category: Logon/Logoff
    Event ID: 529
    Date: 4/11/2006
    Time: 4:20:00 PM
    Computer: SBS
    Logon Failure:
    Reason: Unknown user name or bad password
    User Name: Administrator
    Domain: BIGAGIS
    Logon Type: 4
    Logon Process: Advapi
    Authentication Package: Negotiate
    Workstation Name: SBS
    Caller User Name: SBS$
    Caller Domain: BIGAGIS
    Caller Logon ID: (0x0,0x3E7)
    Caller Process ID: 1700
    Transited Services: -
    Source Network Address: -
    Source Port: -

    The process id 1700 is svchost.exe. I can't tell exactly where to make an
    update to keep this event from happening.

    Please advise if there is anything I can do to stop this. We are using SBS
    2003 Premium.

  2. Open a command prompt on the SBS and type "tasklist /svc" without the
    quotes. Scroll the list until you find the instance of svchost that's
    associated with PID 1700, and it'll tell you what application it is.

    When you change the password, you usually have to scroll the list in
    Services to see what's logging on as Administrator and change it there as
    well. Also the Scheduled Tasks.
