Skype Event id 5156 Windows 2008 R2
Posted on 2016-09-04
We have Skype Events id 5156 of audit success in our Windows 2008 R2 each second or each minute. What could be the reason for so many Events id 5156 of Skype? Is there a way to avoid Skype to post so many Events id 5156 on the Event Viewer without damaging works correctly ? Because is not comfortable be filled of garbage each second. This is the example of the Event id where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is our static IP:
