We have a SBS 2003 server at our local church.  Noticed in the security logs that we have a bunch of these.   Anyone know what it means?  And also by just disabling administrator can it be fixed?

Logon type 3 is a network logon are there any machines on the network?

From MS doc:Rename the administrator account: Because the administrator account cannot be locked out, it is recommended that you rename the account.
