Troubleshooting 1202 Events on Windows 2000 Server Network

I have been floded by the 1202 Events Warning.  It states:  "Security policies are propageted with warning, 0x534 : No mapping between account names and security ID's was done."

I did some research:  MS Article #324383 - tells about 1202 and how to fix them. but I'm having problems understanding the fix.  If you follow this article, the very first section seem to follow my problem (warning) and walks me through the "find" of the problem.  In the #3 step I get the return results pointing to "Power Users" and not a users name or account.  in step #4, the result is that it finds this in the "GPT00000.DOM".

And now I'm lost and not sure where to go with the rest of fixing this matter.   I have 4 Win2K Servers and 50 WIN2K-Pro Clients in a Domain with AD.  Power Users is found on the client, but I really don't have any special needs for it.

Also this 1202 Event is being logged about every 5 minutes too, and on all 4 servers.

Don't know how much help this will be (I looked at the MS article you listed - Lost me too!) -

Good luck!
Ass suggested in the event details; i went to:
a.      Start -> Run -> RSoP.msc
b.      Review the results for Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment and Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Restricted Groups for any errors flagged with a red X.

there was a red x on one of my policies (Log On As A Service)
As i looked up the policy, there was a username that was NOT a domain usersname/user/service/profile/account in the GPO; i removed the account; cleared the error
