I'm looking for the cause of this error in my Security Event Log. The server is Windows 2008 R2 Standard running Microsoft Lync 2010 with the integrated SQL (formally known as MSDE, I don't recall what they call it today). This error seems to occur about every 20 minutes or when manually running GPUPDATE. When it occurs I always get 3 in a row (never any more or less).

	Security ID:		LOCAL SERVICE

That is a pretty generic log entry, but may be triggered by a elevated-permissions account accessing some object.

Take a look at this thread in TechNet for a related discussion which may point you in the right direction.  

BTW "SQL Express" is the name you are looking for.

Hey it happens to all of us.

I've seen that article. We've just filtered those alerts out until we can find the cause (meaning we'll forget about it).

Thank you!
