Why does the error message ID 4104 appear in the event log right after the recovery of Windows 2000?

--Details of error message--
[Type] Warning
[Source] COM+
[Category] CRM
[Event ID] 4104
[Description] The CRM log file was originally created on a computer with a different name. It has been updated with the name of the current computer. If this warning appears when the computer name has been changed then no further action is required.

We have confirmed the symptom.

To pre-install OS to VAIO computers, the disk image of the OS has been created with a computer for development purposes.
The computer you purchased has a different computer name from that of the computer used for development. When you start your computer for the first time, the OS judges that the computer name has been changed. Therefore, the OS updates the CRM log file according to the change of the computer name.
You may disregard the error message and continue to use the computer as it is. Please rest assured that Windows on your computer works normally.

--Remarks--
CRM stands for "Compensating Resource Managers", which manages application resources.
