I have been getting this error in my event viewer for some time now

Source: DCOM
Event ID: 10016

The machine-default permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
{8BC3F05E-D86B-11D0-A075-00C04FB68820} to the user NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE SID (S-1-5-20).
This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

For more information, see Help and Support Center. Help and Support says:

To assign permissions:
Using Regedit, navigate to the following registry value HKCR\Clsid\clsid value\localserver32
{8BC3F05E-D86B-11D0-A075-00C04FB68820} refers to the Windows Management and Instrumentation.
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.

I can get this far but then I'm not sure what I do from here
Have no idea what kind of permissions should be listed in there

Could somebody please walk me thru the last part with the permissions...

** On the Security tab, in the Launch and Activation Permissions group box, select Customize,
and then click Edit. **

I have attached a screen shot for you if that helps....I'm running WIN XP HOME 32 bit.

Thanks so much!
