First, I can't seem to figure out how to attach files to this post. I wanted to attached a screen print along with FRST.txt and Addition.txt from FRST64 app that I just downloaded.
NOTE: for my own peace of mind, I renamed the userid from '??????' to 'Charly' in the attached files.
I'm the administrator of this Lenovo notebook running windows 10 64-bit pro.
My event viewer has a recurring dcom issues with what appears to be a Lenovo application.
Error: (03/16/2017 01:07:14 PM) (Source: DCOM) (EventID: 10016) (User: Shadow-VI)
Description: The machine-default permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
to the user Shadow-VI\Charly SID (S-1-5-21-1349610268-1446705000-873866466-1000) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC) running in the application container LenovoCorporation.LenovoID_220.127.116.11_x86__4642shxvsv8s2 SID (S-1-15-2-1739223337-1177984934-722485270-445606100-3168345968-3693140498-1001633489). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.
In researching the event online, it was suggested (to others with similar issues) to use dcomcnfg to set/reset the appid in question and the RuntimeBroker security. But when I open the DCOM Config branch I get a configuration warning (see image attached) and then trying to access the Security tab of the RuntimeBroker, the security options are disabled. I right clicked on dcomcnfg and chose 'run as administrator' but there isn't the usual prompt to confirm the request.
I think there's something messed up and I don't know how to fix it. Can anyone help?
