DCOM Errors


A

A Holzhausen

I continually get DCOM errors at start up. There are eight events in my last
boot up. They seem to be the same. I copied the trail of info here. I
follow the instructions to change the launch and activation permissions but I
get lost when I open the DCOM configuration in Administrative tools because I
can’t figure out the “friendly nameâ€. Could someone please help me resolve
this issue?

My system is as follows:

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 10016
Source: DCOM
Version: 5.2
Symbolic
Name: EVENT_COM_ACCESS_DENIED_IN_SERVER_ACTIVATION_OR_LAUNCH_PERMISSION
Message: The %1 permission settings do not grant %2 %3 permission for the
COM Server application with CLSID %4 to the user %5\%6 SID (%7). This
security permission can be modified using the Component Services
administrative tool.
%1 = machine-default, application-specific; %2 = local, remote; %3 = launch,
activation; %4 = ; %5 = /; %6 = .

Explanation
A program, the Clsid displayed in the message, tried to start the DCOM
server by using the DCOM infrastructure. Based on the security ID (SID), this
user does not have the necessary permissions to start the DCOM server.

User Action
Verify that the user has the appropriate permissions to start the DCOM
server.
To assign permissions
1. Using Regedit, navigate to the following registry value
HKCR\Clsid\clsid value\localserver32
The clsid value is the information displayed in the message.
2. In the right pane, double-click Default. The Edit String dialog box is
displayed. Leave this dialog box open.
3. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
4. Double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Component
Services.
5. In the Component Services snap-in, expand Computers, expand My Computer,
and double-click DCOM Config.
6. In the right pane, locate the program by using its friendly name.
7. Right-click the program name, and then select Properties.
8. On the Security tab, in the Launch and Activation Permissions group box,
select Customize, and then click Edit.
Add the user to the permissions list, and give the user the appropriate
permissions.

I am getting errors after loading service pack 3. (windows
root)\system32\hal.dll.

I can not get the system to reboot. Windows XP was pre loaded on the machine
so I don't have the disk. Any suggestions? When I called Microsoft they
directed to to post a blog because they can't help.
