    Thats encouraging news. Perhaps this isn't uncommon or suspicious at all. Hopefully Kaspersky will say yay or nay on the issue.

    Not sure what you mean. Enterprise or Pro shouldn't matter in this case.

    I have the exact same problem.
    Same event, bombing my administrator account multiple times within like 30 seconds.
    I also noticed a system hang during that time but I'm not yet sure if it is related to this event in any way.

    I've not experienced any hangs or bahavior issues with my PC other than the suspicious event logs. Can you list what applications you have installed? I did have to uninstall Malwarebytes thought as it causes compatibility problems with Kaspersky. It wasn't detecting malware anyway.



    No one has reponded to my post in Kaspesky's forum, so no news on my end. I ran scans using Eset's online scanner and also with SuperAntispyware and they come up clean as well.

    Perhaps others here should start topics over at their respective AV vendor? The more eyes we have on this, the quicker we get it resolved.

    I don't believe my system hangs are related to my events to be honest.
    My system hangs started after I re formatted my computer installing windows 7, right from the start. I thought it's just some weird software issue but they happen in windows 8 as well.

    I'm using windows defender atm.
