Event ID 63

Anybody know what the hell this means?

"Product: Windows Operating System Event ID: 63 Source: WinMgmt Version: 5.2 Symbolic Name: WBEM_MC_PROVIDER_SUBSYSTEM_LOCALSYSTEM_PROVIDER_LOAD Message: A provider, %1, has been registered in the WMI namespace, %2, to use the LocalSystem account. This account is privileged and the provider may cause a security violation if it does not correctly impersonate user requests.

The Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) provider subsystem runs individual providers within specific COM servers based on their required security level. Only administrators are allowed to register providers and configure their required security level, and only trusted providers should be configured to use LocalSystem. This warning message is an audit record indicating that the provider is running with the privileges of the LocalSystem account."

Sounds serious.

Any ideas?

Do you have an ADSL connection by any chance?

Hello Sandy.

I had a similar problem earlier this year after downloading Microsoft update files. I suspect I had some "nasties" running in the background, which hadn't been detected, had somehow reacted with my software.
I downloaded and ran C-Cleaner which solved the problem.
Worth a try
