EventID 675 For Domain Admin Account on DC

Last Modified: 2013-12-04
I recently made a change to my Domain Admin account, and wound up having to "Reset" the password with another Enterprise admin user.  I am now getting multiple events that are listed below, and can not figure out how to fix the problem.  My domain admin account has been renamed, and is no longer named "Administrator", any ideas on how to solve this?  These events are happing at a very high frequency, and are interfering with my AD function, I am at a complete loss.
