    I found the Security Log audit failure below on one of our XP machines. Whenever I try to Google it I get several pages talking about audit failures for svchost.exe and lsass.exe, but nothing about the print spooler. This particular machine has several of the svchost.exe and lsass.exe failures, so I'm wondering whether this is something I can ignore. Spyware and virus scans repeatedly turn up nothing.
