Multiple failed logon attempts from "Windows Manager\DWM-#"
Posted on 2014-09-15
During a recent network audit, we noticed that Windows 8, and server2012 machines have multiple failed logon attempts from the users "Window Management\DWM-1" (-2 -3 etc). After a bit of research I have found multiple articles on the Desktop Windows Manager hogging resources, or failing to start, but I cannot seem to find anyone who has experienced (or noticed) that these service accounts are creating failed logon attempts. I was hoping someone might be able to shed some light on this.
