Event Viewer-Dcom error

Event Viewer-Dcom error

Event Viewer-Dcom error

(OP)
MY system:
WinXP Pro with SP1
AMD Athlon 1400 with 768 MB pc133 sdram
---------
I have been getting an error msg. (listed below) in the Event Viewer/System module. It seems to be occuring at start-up only. I've run accross a few posts here and elsewhere pointing to the ILS service, but this has been disable a long time ago. Also some indication that it is a result of the Mblast worm exploit, but this to is not an issue on my system (worm not present, and patch has been applied to seal this potential threat). I have played around with a few apps the kick-in at start-up, but have had no success. Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Event Viewer-Dcom error

MrFizzBin,

Any luck finding a solution to this problem? I'm seeing the same thing on a Win XP Pro workstation.
