  1. ok, Im not sure if its a good or bad thing,

    but so far there are no side effects, but pretty much since DAY 1 Of Building this Rig and Loading XP SP2

    I Get Event IDs 539 and 540 at the same time, over and over again all day, All Anonymous Logins..

    Coming From :
    Logon Process: NtLmSsp
    Authentication Package: NTLM

    And they are all Coming from anther XP SP2 PC on my Network (in another Room of my house)....

    I was just wondering if this is someone trying to do something stupid with my network or if its just the XP systems communicating with each other?

    IM not sure but i think the other XP system has the same type of excessive events.

    Im Also getting these Entries when My Modem is OFFLINE w/ the ISP, and My Network is Wired and Firewalled and Passworded.

    Now that you mention it, I have the same entries as well. After some googling, I found this article:


    I think this is a safe entry, but hopefully someone else'll confirm they have the same entries.
