DistributedCOM Errors Flooding Event Log

Q. I’m looking at my Event Viewer and the following is written probably over a thousand times?

The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 
 and APPID 
 to the user NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE SID (S-1-5-19) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC) running in the application container Unavailable SID (Unavailable). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

I found the Applied in the DCOM Config via Component Services and It appears to be tied to “ShellServiceHost” any idea how I can keep this from happening?


This is very bad programming in my humble opinion and Microsoft should do something to fix them. My computer is locking up and crashing all the time when I’m on line doing something important. I belong to several very large computer clubs. I volunteer to repair hardware and software problems for free for Veterans and the elderly.

People are constantly telling me that they are tired of all the problems with their Windows PC’s and they are giving away their computers and buying Apples. I am constantly going into my registries in my four Windows 10 64 bit computers and editing it and then going into Component Services and fixing it. A few days later I get a new Distributed Com error. Microsoft should write new programming to replace this pain in the butt to try to stem the tide of computer users going to Apple. It’s disgusting.
