Does anyone notice Event ID 55 NTFS errors that seem to have NO actual error?

Hi All,

We have noticed an odd bug on Windows 7.  Some (but not all) hardware configurations at our food bank are getting odd Event ID 55 NTFS errors.  However, the hardware diagnostics check out fine and it's happening on several identical donated machines (all brand new with OEM Windows 7 images) so we have to conclude it's a Windows "issue."  

We have done EXHAUSTIVE research online and on Technet and we see decent amount of people reporting this issue with other brand new machines (Lenovo, HP, etc) and they reference various MS Hotfixes, etc.  We are trying to narrow down a cause before just installing random hotfixes.

It seems to occur at random, once to several times a day.  Chkdsk finds nothing wrong, but something keeps making Windows produce these Event 55 messages in the System Log.

Any help would be sincerely appreciated.  Thanks!
