  1. Excessive logoff events ID 4634 from Guest account


    Don't ask me why, but I was looking in the event viewer and noticed at there were highly frequent logoff events coming from the Guest account, like once ever second. There are no associated logons, it's all logoffs, all originating from the guest account.


    I have not tried enabling the guest account. The only thing that I thought might use the guest account is O'Print, which is a printer server software that I use to print from apple devices on the network, but stopping it didn't stop this phenomenon.


    I haven't noticed any significant performance issues, but this seems really strange.


    Should I be concerned? Is there a way to track down what is causing it?


    Thanks!

    Properties--all the same except Logon ID:


    An account was logged off.


    Subject:

    Security ID: ComputerName\Guest

    Account Name: Guest

    Account Domain: ComputerName

    Logon ID: 0x9378E5A



    Logon Type: 3



    This event is generated when a logon session is destroyed. It may be positively correlated with a logon event using the Logon ID value. Logon IDs are only unique between reboots on the same computer.

    :)

    Excessive logoff events ID 4634 from Guest account

    Guest account Windows 10 Pro

    i also not view this account in Control Panel-User Accounts. so i decide enable it by self - call LsaRemoveAccountRights on Guest Sid - for remove SeDenyInteractiveLogonRight. enable account we can do from UI ( this remove USER_ACCOUNT_DISABLED flag from

    SAMPR_DOMAIN_DISPLAY_USER
    . AccountControl or if want
    UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE from NET_DISPLAY_USER.usri1_flags ). as result after logoff - i view Guest in the user list and can enter as guest. but just after logon - explorer.exe permanent crashed and restarted (desktop frequently blink) - only CTRL+ALT+DEL help
    for logoff and stop this. however eveen after this Guest not shown in Control Panel-User Accounts - only before logon - in user list
