    I'm making some progress, I deleted all the Google Drive Sync stuff that got installed when I needed to download a bunch of pictures from my LG Android to my PC. Eliminating that seems to have fixed the File Explorer problem?!

    However, I guess I have a second problem that probably has been there for awhile - that is the Audit Failure entry in the Security Log. I'm getting an entry every second and sometimes multiple entries for the same time. I don't get this on the other machines on the network. It doesn't seem to have a negative effect on the system performance...but...something is not right. HELP.

    The IP address on the picture you posted is an IP that you would see on a device with no real IP address. Is there a device connected to your network besides your computers perhaps?

    Yes, several devices but those same devices are showing on all the other computers on the network too.

    If they are on the network but are not getting a valid IP address, that could cause the error you are seeing. It is trying to access your PC but it does not have a valid IP address for some reason. Maybe someone that knows more about these devices can help as well.

    It could be a part of one of those devices. I am not sure when it comes to things other than computers on the network.

    Why don't any of the other computers on the home network have the same problem since they see all the same devices?

    I guess I can try shutting the off one at a time and see what happens.

    All I can say for sure is some device without a valid IP address is trying to access your PC. It has to be on the local network with the IP that it has.

    Anything else would only be a guess and I really am not sure what would cause something like that.

    Actually with the 1900 port and the other IP I see in there. It could be UPNP on your router causing this somehow.

    I wonder why it's not effecting the other machines on the network?

    I'll try shutting them off one at a time to see if it any thing changes.

    I'm still trying to figure out what the heck is wrong with one computer on my home network. I have five other Windows 10 systems on the network and none of them have the Security Log errors that this one has.

    All of the machines on the network see all the same networked devices.
    When I disconnect all the non-computer(PC) devices on the network I still get the Security Log error activity.
    When I disconnect the Ethernet cable on the problem computer the Security Log error activity stops - I guess as expected.

    The IP Addresses that appear the most often are:
    Source Address: and
    Destination Address:

    There is one occurrence of:
    Source Address: fe80::d444:c050:2719:3316
    Destination Address: fe80::655c:e346:7cbd:93d2

    Attached is a brief snapshot of the Security Log activity!

    Try disabling the SSDP service and see if it stops. This is not a solution, I am just trying to help figure out what it is.

    Stopping the service slowed down the Security Log error activity. The Source Addresses and went away. New ones are appearing but at a much slower pace for what that's worth with new Source Addresses. Chrome and Dashhost are now the programs generating errors.

    Also these appear:
    Source Address: fe80::655c:e346:7cbc:93d2 (two times)
    Destination Address: ff02::fb

    Source Address: fe80::52c7:bfff:fea7:76cc (three times)
    Destination Address: ff02::1
