    Multiple security audit events, Is my sytem compromised?

    Heres a few sample of what im seeing in event viewer

    An account was successfully logged on.
    Security ID: NULL SID
    Account Name: -

    Code Integrity determined that the page hashes of an image file are not valid. The file could be improperly signed without page hashes or corrupt due to unauthorized modification. The invalid hashes could indicate a potential disk device error.

    File Name: \Device\HarddiskVolume2\Windows\System32\guard64.dll

    And the one that troubles me the most is this one:

    An attempt was made to query the existence of a blank password for an account.
    Security ID: LOCAL SERVICE
    Account Name: LOCAL SERVICE
    Account Domain: NT AUTHORITY
    Logon ID: 0x3E5
    Additional Information:
    Caller Workstation: xxxx
    Target Account Name: xxxxxxxx
    Target Account Domain: xxxxx


    This last event I found a post about it here when googling it, could be system compromised or nasty rootkit malware. WTF is going on?
    Im getting tired of this and about to cleanly install a Linux distro to have peace of mind. Someone please help me before I do so.

    I would download and run MalwareBytes, using a rootkit scan and a reboot, running in "safe mode with networking" enabled.

    Sorry for taking so long to respond, but Im afraid malware bytes or any typical AV would not have been able to resolve this issue.

    Upon the time of this happening I talked to a computer security forensics expert and from what I explained to him, looks like my entire network was compromised. They had got in through wifi. Had to RMA all computer parts and start from scratch, since I believe I was infected by a hardware based BIOS rootkit which are not detectable by AVs.
