The Process Information fields indicate which account and process on the system requested the logon.

Thank you for the suggestions I have ran both the security scanner and Malwarebytes and have found no bots.  The failed logins are still occurring.

I agree with Toby. Seems to be a brute force attack. Does it come from the same computer each time? Either way you need to run some virus scans asap. Your current a/v hasn't caught it so i'd suggest using the free security scanner from microsoft, http://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx, it actually works very well.
