All have forward and reverse entries. Some users are listed as being logged on to the same machine twice; one with a log on time of hours (or days) and the other relatively new. When you see a computer name followed by the dollar sign, is it an application installed on the machine which has been allowed to run as a service? Thanks, for looking!
