I was going through my event viewer, looking for something, to see if I could find a certain error code, and I accidentally clicked on.. My security tab.


I saw this.

Now it's there quite a few times, and seemingly only when I log on. (I share this computer with a few others)


I also am labled on the computer interface as HP_Owner, instead of the name I had chosen for my desktop (I think I set myself up as total admin when I got this new computer)

Now does anyone have -any- clue what so ever as to why I'm getting the whole anonymous logon thing?


I'm running on XP with SP2 installed on it (Came that way) All of my updates are..well up to date..

I'm running AVG virusprotection (The free one)

And Zone Alarm.

I don't know if this has happened before the 3rd of July as my log isn't going back that far, but it does show up on the logs for the 3rd.


I'm just worried, this is a new computer,I don't want to ruin it, I have a black thumb with computers I think, though I'm learning.

Thanks in advance guys.
