Event ID 100 filling System Log

When I come in and check the logs, they have been filling with Event ID 100:

The server was unable to logon the Windows NT account 'administrator' due to the following error: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.  The data is the error code.

It will say user account admin or administrator.  This is an invalid attempt at someone trying to hack in, is there anyway to avoid that?

Thank you!
