Error 1332: No mapping between account names

I've got an issue that is happening on several servers:

Error 1332: No mapping between account names and security IDs was done
Cannot find Authenticated User.

I've gone through all of the GPO settings and made sure there weren't any accounts in there that shouldn't be. Where is Authenticated User generated from? I cannot find a reference to it.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Info: 4 DC's on the network, 1 GPO domain wide.


Thanks!

follow these steps:
1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
2. Double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Local Security Policy.
3. Click Local Policies, and then click User Rights Assignment.
4. Double-click each item under User Rights Assignments to see whether the item contains the Power Users group. When you find a policy item that contains the Power Users group, click to clear the Power Users check box and then click OK.  
5. Restart the computer and review the Winlogon.log file and Event Viewer to make sure that the error messages no longer occur.

This is happening on multiple servers. I checked all of the computers (most of them are the DCs) that are exhibiting this behavior and none of them have the Power Users in any policy, domain or local.

The Restricted Users is clear on all of them too.

Any other ideas?
