    I was looking through my event viewer to see what kind of errors I have, and under applications there was a warning that said this:

    Event Type: Warning
    Event Source: WinMgmt
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 63
    Date: 7/12/2006
    Time: 5:18:36 PM
    User: COMP\Franco
    Computer: COMP
    Description:
    A provider, OffProv11, has been registered in the WMI namespace, Root\MSAPPS11, to use the LocalSystem account. This account is privileged and the provider may cause a security violation if it does not correctly impersonate user requests.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

    What does this mean? Is someone connecting to my computer?? Hope someone can help, Thanks in advance.

    Several questions: Is your computer named COMP?
    Is there a user account 'Franco' on your computer?
    Who's your ISP? (i.e., AOL, NetZero, etc.)
    Is the Windows frewall on?
    Do you remember if the computer was on, who was using it, and what was being done at that date and time? Any idea?
