Default Anybody give me an idea what this is asking me to do?

Does anybody have any Idea what this is asking of me? I understand part of it but it asks me to locate a file with a "Friendly name". I have no clue what it is asking.

Details
Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 10016
Source: DCOM
Version: 5.2
Symbolic Name: EVENT_COM_ACCESS_DENIED_IN_SERVER_ACTIVATION_OR_LA UNCH_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

Using Regedit, navigate to the following registry value
HKCR\Clsid\clsid value\localserver32
The clsid value is the information displayed in the message.
In the right pane, double-click Default. The Edit String dialog box is displayed. Leave this dialog box open.
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Component Services.
In the Component Services snap-in, expand Computers, expand My Computer, and double-click DCOM Config.
In the right pane, locate the program by using its friendly name.
Right-click the program name, and then select Properties.
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.


This is the part that has me stumpped:

"In the right pane, locate the program by using its friendly name."

Here is the error event:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: DCOM
Event Category: None
Event ID: 10016
Date: 3/26/2007
Time: 6:55:49 PM
User: NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE
Computer: MYFIRSTMSISYS
Description:
The machine-default permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
{BC866CF2-5486-41F7-B46B-9AA49CF3EBB1}
to the user NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE SID (S-1-5-19). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.


Special thanks to anyone who helps me get past this hurdle.

I don't know but there is a bucket full of them in the system event viewer. I originally found it when I was looking for an antivirus error.

I'm trying to resolve the DCOM error but got stopped at this MS Help log instruction:

"In the right pane, locate the program by using its friendly name."

I don't have a clue what a "Friendly name" is or how to identify it.

Default I give up I tried to fix the error but

every attempt to follow Microsoft's instructions were met with failure.

There's just gonna have to be a couple hundred trillion DCOM errors each time I run this PC.

The "friendly name" is the name of the program that's attempting to access DCOM when the error occurs. That's why I asked what prompts the error. If it's happening on it's own, you've got something in the background trying to access it.

So you need to cut some of the fat from your boot up. If you have a bunch of crap in your taskbar, clean it out and see if the error goes away. If it doesn't, you might have to disable some "TSR" (yeah... I know, they're not called that anymore) using MSCONFIG.

Default This has to be the best forum as far as replies go...

This JonnyGuru stuff is great. I was everywhere last night trying to resolve this error and everywhere else PPL treated me with arrogance.

You guys seem human to me. Have a sense of human kindness...when I don't step on something of praise, that is ...Joke

Nevertheless, the problem of trillions and trillions of errors...red error flags coming out of areas very dark and private...has been resolved...by accident.

I had other PPL telling...in other forums...the errors were caused by programs that, to me, didn't seem to have anything to do with the error. One instance a person put out

"Not too difficult...

'msimn.exe' is the program name.
"Outlook Express" is the "Friendly" name."

Where that came from, I don't know and the person wouldn't say. So it may or may not be a legitimate direction.

As it turns out the problem was related to the Nvidia network control adaptor. I had the latest drivers installed for it and uninstalled them then reinstalled the Ethernet drivers that came on the CD with the motherboard. No more red flags. Well...there is one that caused this whole search to begin with...Avast ashWebSv.exe. It kept failing and Avast tech support was deplorable and evasive. In the end I've removed Avast from, so far, two computers and will be removing it, functioning properly or not, from all of the rest of my PCs.

Thanks to everyone who lended a helping hand
