I have just installed Windows 2008 Enterprise (please note that Exchange is not running on the server). I am getting the Security Event Log warning 4625. The strange thing is that on restarting the server it is automatically trying to log in an account which doesn't exist and giving the error "The user name or password is incorrect", everytime I need to click on the Switch User button to log into the Administrator account.

Attached is the Security Event Log.
