A Window 2008 R2 Server (due for imminent replacement) is generating attempted failed ogon events for administrator account multiple times per second (eventID 4776).

Any way I can find out whats causing this ? is there malware on the Lan ?

Ive temporarily tried disabling administrator account but events still appearing.

The computer attempted to validate the credentials for an account.

Logon Account:    administrator
Source Workstation:    
Error Code:    0xc000006a
