Excessive Security Log Events - Event ID 5379 - Windows 10

I have been experiencing Windows Application crashes on my 3 month old Windows 10 install. While troubleshooting, I noticed that there 50+ security events each minute in the Event Viewer under Windows Logs > Security.  

Is this normal?  

The majority are Audit Success Messages with the Event ID 5379.  There are approximately 50 of these identical messages every minute. Thanks for any insight on this.

See below for typical Message:

Credential Manager credentials were read.

Subject:

Security ID: DESKTOP\*****

Account Name: *****

Account Domain: DESKTOP

Logon ID: 0x354889

Read Operation: Enumerate Credentials

This event occurs when a user performs a read operation on stored credentials in Credential Manager.

I am facing the same issue. However Windows does not crash. It is just does nothing for 1-4 seconds. It is even impossible to move the mouse pointer. This happens roughly every 15 minutes.  I am using Microsoft Windows Home Version 1909 (Build 18363.778).

It's seems to be a DOCM issue related to a ADVAPI not cooperating with Windows. I don't think I've solved it but I'd look into the DISM hierarchy fix.

It seems more stable after running through this:

Well I don't know if this is a problem. Honestly, I came here expecting to solve this issue to fix some stuttering I had. What I ended up doing was going into Device Manager and changing all my IDE ATA/ATAPI Drivers from AMD ACHI, to the Standard SATA ACHI Controller. Not sure if it'll fix your issues, but it helped me.
