    My Win2K server has an enormous amount of errors regarding DCOM.

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: DCOM
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 10002
    Date: 12/14/2004
    Time: 11:33:30 AM
    User: N/A
    Computer: SERVER1
    Access denied attempting to launch a DCOM Server. The server is:
    The user is Unavailable/Unavailable, SID=Unavailable.

    I ran the dcom config tool and found it to be msiserver to be the cause. I did a search and found a few others with the same issue, but with different causes, like msword, apc power shoot, etc. No one has come up with an answer to the riddle though of how to correct it, OR if it is some sort of hack/attack/virus that is showing up. I really dont want to give this particular DCOM server access if it will cause an issue. If you Kn0w what I mean! :eek:
