I have a SBS 2008 I have inherited and I am receiving a Event ID
4625 Audit Failure.

According to  KB 920783 I need to "Select Users, Computers, or Groups dialog box, type the domain user account that you specified as the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 service account, click Check Names, and then click OK In the Permissions for UserName list, click to select the Allow check box that is next to Local Activation, and then click OK two times."

It appears that "testuser" was used then deleted. How would I proceed to correct this error? It logs almost two errors per second.
