I've been using it for about 6 months with no problems. I have seen over time references to Steve Gibson from several places. He is apparently quite a guru, and extremely advanced in computer sciences. I use some of his other utilities, too, like "Shoot The Messenger".

I guess that DCOMbobulator deals with a vulnerability that has been fixed in Windows XP SP2, which is what I have. Using his tool, whether I have DCOM enabled or disabled, it still shows my PC as being not vulnerable. I just leave it disabled.
