This is a new one for me. After getting much need help on this site, my computer had been running beautifully. Then today after working on a project I came back to my computer (nothing was left open) and I had a bsod. I have it set so it doesn't restart by itself. I started it in safe mode (although I don't think I would know what should happen or what I'm looking for in safe mode) and found that the event log gave me a Event ID 4609 - COM+ Event System General Functionality error. Detected a bad return code during its interanl processing. HRESULT was %3 from line %2 of %1.
After reading much stuff on the internet and thru MicroSoft, it said to make sure that COM+ Event System, Com+ System Application, DCOM Server Process Launcher and Remote Procedure Call (RPC) services were started. I went through it and the COM+ System Application was not listed as 'STARTED' but as 'MANUAL'. Should this be set to automatic for it to list as STARTED?
I really am in way over my head on this and don't want to destroy what had been a very nicely working system.
Thanks for any help.
