    I have those same events but I believe this is normal. It looks to me that windows is doing a security audit to see if any of your accounts have blank passwords which could be a security risk. It checks my Admin and Guest accounts which do have passwords and the event says "Audit success". I would think that if you have a blank password on an account it would raise an event to let you know.

    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.
    Can you list all programs you have installed?
    Uhh, what for?
    Just comparing what programs we might share in common to determine a pattern.

    Unfortunately, that's not the case. I just enabled my guest account w/ no password, rebooted and the same event showed back up, just like always with no failed audits or warnings about vulnerable accounts of any kind.

    MBAR says system is clean. Autoruns also indicates there are no App_init DLLs.

    I sent an email directly to Kaspersky Support hoping they will respond. They're about 3 days away from me re-imaging my PC.

    MBAR found nothing on my PC's either.

    I'm thinking we're going to find out it's just Windows being well, you know, Windows.

    I remain skeptical as well. I hope you're right.

    Yea is this a new feature that even Microsoft won't comment on in their own forums...
    61 times..hundreds in weeks? My moms windows 8 home is even doing it. It's definitely solely related to windows 8 that i can see any Windows 7 users out there with 4797's??????????
    I checked Dad's Windows 7 Home Premium. Not a single 4797 in it.
