Hello Experts,
I have a client that is running into an issue with the security logs filling up and users cannot access the computer.  After looking at several of the events I am a bit concerned about the "logon account" .  The names listed keep changing?  Like someone is trying to hack into the computer.

I will attach a couple screen shots for your review.

I would like some help analyzing this issue.

Thanks! Event-Log-Sample.pdf

Obviously, your XP client PC has been compromised and someone is trying to hack into the Server via the xp computer.
