Windows NT 4.0 server gets "OleMainThreadWndName" error when trying to logout or shutdown

Server is running Windows NT 4.0, SP6a and all of the last latest Microsoft updates for NT 4.0. Server has over 1 GB of RAM and is running Echange 5.5.

I researched Google and this site but found nothing related to servers.

I am running Panda AdminSecure 4.0 (latest version of Panda's Antivirus server based software)
This error did not appear prior to installing this update. Server was running Panda AdminSecure 3.06.10 (lateset previous version).

I googled this error and all I found was something to do with Symanted AV and possible running Spybot

Although I plan on updating this server to Windows 2003 within the next 45-60 days, I need to know if this error is going to be a critical issue. Does anyone have any suggestions?

That is nothing severe, just points to an automation server that did not manage to shut down properly before you log off or shutdown, it definitely is an application problem. What you can do is finding the corresponding application and close it before logging off.

I tried shutting down all all services before logging off, including the Panda Software

Are there any additional entries in your Application or System Event logs?

Therewere no additional specific related entries.
Resolution: I ended up unistalling Panda AdminSecure 2006 from this NT server which also got rid of the issue. I installed the Panda AdminSecure console on a freshly built Windows 2003 server and had no issues.
Thanks for you input.

I agree with refunding the points.  The author comment (ID: 18212552) has the resolution contained in it.  Perhaps give partial points to jkr for pointing the author in that direction.
