OK I looked up the event number 4099 & the event source WMIAdapter. I know know now that the WMIAdapter is the Windows Management Instrumentation. It is a component of the Windows operating system that provides management information and control of various applications that follow the standard. WMI is the Microsoft implementation of Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM), which is an industry initiative to develop a standard technology for accessing management information in an enterprise environment.
Great!
