DCOM Error


OSNN Junior Addict
So I chose here because it's pretty much about windows. I'm going to copy and paste what I posted at another site.

DCOM got error "The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. " attempting to start the service StiSvc with arguments "" in order to run the server:

Type: Error
Source: DCOM
EventID: 10005

I get that A LOT. The majority of my errors are from this and I want to know what it is and how to fix it. I looked ALL over hte place, microsoft seemed to think it had something to do with IIS but I don't have that installed. I tried translated sites from google, russian to english, and all I got out of it was that I think he did a windows restore.

I have all my patches right now, Windows XP SP1. I'm not running too many applications, just AIM and Opera pretty much, I have my antivirus (AVG) disabled right now and my firewall (kerio).

Even as I type this more errors have popped up on the event viewer.

Someone pleaseee help

Dont worry about DCOM errors, they are benign and DCOM is a security threat which should be disabled.

The service you are looking for is COM+, which should be disabled. Take a looksee here http://grc.com/dcom/

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
