Event Log Shows Guest Account & dopus.exe

I have Audit Failures in my Security Event Log that shows dopus.exe try to use the Guest account. Do you know why is this occurring? I reinstalled Windows last week, so all the software hasn't been reconfigured.

An account failed to log on.

It's not something Opus does explicitly, but it sounds like it can happen when a program (any program, not just Opus) tries to access files which are permissioned for Everyone (but, presumably, not the current user, although the details are vague):

If you can work out which folder you access to trigger the issue, you'll most likely see the same thing from explorer.exe as well, if you access the same folder from it.
