Recently, we discovered that in some unknown cases windows generates multiple logons failed (log id 4625). In all cases, the linked account name ended with $ that means computer account login failed. Also based on our tries, we didn't recognize any problem in communication between active directory (AD) and the client sides.

My questions are:

- How and why does windows generate this types of logon failed events (when their account name ended with $)?
- How can we solve them?
