On computer TPACCPDC002TMH, user account awalker is providing a bad password when attempting to authenticate.  (The error code 0xC000006A means bad password.)

I'd open services first, and see if you have any services which are attempting to run as awalker.  Then check for other processes which are attempting to start, but are failing.  Check for Scheduled Tasks using the awalker credentials.  I've also seen email or IM clients with stored credentials also lock out accounts.

thank you.  I'm pretty sure its a dell app called appassure (we call it crapassure).   It's just awful what we have to go through with this.  I have to hunt and peck one by one by one and fix it.
