Windows 7: TONS of DistributedCOM errors

TONS of DistributedCOM errors

I noticed in my Event Viewer that I have literally THOUSANDS of errors with source listed as DistributedCOM and event ID 10016. It logs an error event about 4 times per minute on this.

General info tab says:
"The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
to the user ****\******* SID (S-1-5-21-1873924993-3643908058-657741459-1122) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool."

Is this something I should by concerned about or something I can get stop from happening?

Do you seem to be having any problems while using your PC?

This is the only fix that I am aware of:

Repeated Error 10016 on DistributedCOM

I am having exactly the same issue on a user's PC. The machine seems to run fine, but she has this error in the log every 4 seconds going back as far as I can see.

The reason that I found the error in the first place was that the user is having trouble connecting to sites via remote desktop, and restarting always seems to resolve the issue for a while.

Whatdaya think? Related?

Update: I tried the solution recommended in the response above, but ran into a roadblock at "registry value: HKCR\Clsid\clsid value\localserver32" which does not exist on that machine.
