Any idea what is actually happening here? I cant seem to find any reference to this running in windows xp.. just windows servers..

There doesnt appear to be a reason why it has just started appearing..

Thanks

Jon

I'm not completely sure, but if you have Service Pack 2 freshly installed, then it's probably the updated version of Windows Update.

If you're going to the windows update page manually, you'll probably end up at v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.com (instead of v4...) now as well.

i dont think it automatic updates. its more with the security database or something like that. i would suggest that you check http://www.eventid.net or http://support.microsoft.com for the event ids you recorded.

Had a similar problem, found it to be my antivirus scanning some DB log files - AD/WINS etc. We just set up exclusions on the log file directories and hey presto, no more ESENT events.
