I had this on my HP which I returned for MCE's and now I see it here on my new Dell XP430 as well.
The ERROR is an HTTP Event 15016 and under General it says "Unable to initialize the security package Kerberos for server side authentication. The data field contains the error number."
And under Details it says:

------------------ Of course I have no idea what any of this means.
But I see these Kerberos errors appearing several times a day on my new computer. And some research on the net shows that other people are having freezes and other major problems relating to this so I thought I should try to nip this in the bud before my system also has symptoms from these errors.
So when I click on the link at the bottom of my Events description it says this: " Source:
6.0 Symbolic Name:
Unable to initialize the security package %2 for server side authentication. The data field contains the error number. Resolve Ignore this error
This event occurred because you are using a Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista configuration that does not have and does not require a security package for HTTP service authentication. You can safely ignore this error. Verify
You can safely ignore this error."
But then there are many posts below the link (Event ID 15016 â€” HTTP Service Authentication
) that say things like this:
Ignore, maybe, but the system (Vista Home Premium SP1) hang sporaticallly and the GUI is locked. Mouse moves, but all windows cannot be accessed.... The HD light cycled rhythmically to a particular beat, showing it is looking for something, but not getting a response.
So, there is a definite issue here, at least on my system."
"So Microsoft how exactly do I "ignore" this error? My computer keeps rebooting, I can ignore the error message but I cant ignore the fact that my computer just rebooted and I have to start my download over again, or deal with any unsaved work being deleted. I have papers that I need to write for school and if I keep having problems with your operating system I'm going to stop buying Microsoft products. Make me a happy customer..."
Users posted a "fix" there of changing IE settings for Intranet but I tried that and it did not stop the Errors from occuring.
I also read where this seems to have something with getting authentification to access the net and someone thought it may have to do with their McAfee firewall. I am having problems with my AVG Firewall having problems in accessing the net to get its updates automatically - I have to manually make it connect even though I am connected at the time to the net - so I am thinking maybe it's an AVG issue?
Okay. Any ideas here?
