Windows 7: Win 7 Error - Event 10016, DistributedCOM

02 Sep 2013   #1

Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1
Win 7 Error - Event 10016, DistributedCOM

Event 10016, DistributedCOM From Windows Logs, System in Event Viewer

General Tab:
The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Launch permission for the COM Server application with CLSID {C97FCC79-E628-407D-AE68-A06AD6D8B4D1} and APPID {344ED43D-D086-4961-86A6-1106F4ACAD9B}to the user NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE SID (S-1-5-19) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

Details Tab:
param1 application-specific
param2 Local
param3 Launch
param4 {C97FCC79-E628-407D-AE68-A06AD6D8B4D1}
param5 {344ED43D-D086-4961-86A6-1106F4ACAD9B}
param8 S-1-5-19
param9 LocalHost (Using LRPC)

I'm getting a recurring error in my system log. The Event Log Online Help link follows:

Event ID 10016

Per the instructions in the above link, when I open Component Services and click on My Computer in step 3, I don't see a COM+ Applications to be able to go to step 4.

I'm running Win 7 Pro x64 on an Intel DX58SO w/ i7-930 & 6GB memory.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

FYI - Issue resolved.

I deleted the APPID, {344ED43D-D086-4961-86A6-1106F4ACAD9B}, from the registry after making a backup before hand. The system booted without errors and everything seems to be working fine. That entry may have been obsoleted by updates or something else, because it seems to be trash left over from some time in the past.

I checked the Windows Logs and I don't see any errors after reboot.
