    Could a DCOM error be causing this BSOD?


    Hi, new here.

    I've gone through a long, tumultuous drama with my desktop PC and a certain blue screen. I will try my best to be brief but here's a detailed history. My specs are in the usual spot, as detailed as possible from Speccy.

    -Computer is now a little over a year old. Had a BSOD about kernel security check failure right from the get-go. I thought it was because Windows didn't update these optional updates. I downloaded those optional updates and it was fine for a long time.

    -I can't pinpoint exactly when, but sometime this past summer the BSODs happened again. I believe it has to do with Windows 10 because they became more frequent after the automatic update. The BSODs happened one of three ways - 1: my USB drivers would suddenly stop working, and then the BSOD would happen soon, 2) whenever I downloaded a large file over the Internet (i.e. a game over Steam or Battle.net, etc) the installation would take forever because I kept getting interrupted by a BSOD or 3) I'd leave the PC idle for a long time and return to it having restarted because of a BSOD

    -Over time, the BSOD ONLY HAPPENED in situation number 2. This still became intolerable when I wanted to download a really big game - the new Doom through Steam. It wouldn't reach 3% without hitting a BSOD.

    -I learned about Event Viewer and saw many DCOM errors. I tried fixing the DCOM errors by changing permissions and making sure that the properties under DCOM Config were set to Local Activation and Local Launch, like everybody says. The awkward part - they were already checked. So I was confused and unsure what to do. Other times I couldn't find the DCOM key or whatever in the DCOM Config (but that could just be me starting to lose my sanity at that point). I also used BlueScreenView but that didn't help much because I tried EVERYTHING to diagnose the issue - SFC scan now, chkdsk, device manager, anti-virus and malware check - ALL OF THAT came out okay. I even checked to see if everything inside the computer was attached correctly.

    -It gets stranger - I went on safe mode with networking to download Doom. No BSOD! I was able to reach 20%. I stopped though because IMO there was no sense in fully installing it because I didn't want to just ignore this problem by finding some lazy bypass.

    -I reinstalled Windows 10 but saved my files - still got BSOD afterwards. This time I was trying to download something as innocuous as Firefox. Still got interrupted twice in a row.

    -I then wanted to reinstall Windows 10 and delete EVERYTHING (I backed up my files in my laptop). The computer went haywire and kept throwing BSODs at me every time I wanted to reinstall a second time. For a few minutes, I couldn't access Microsoft Edge or even ACCESS THE WIFI. But then, sporadically, I was able to reset the entire computer and start from a clean slate.

    -Clean slate - PC is practically void of anything except Windows 10. I go to download Firefox - get BSOD yet again. At this point, I am starting to think I am in hell.

    -Event Viewer is cleared up EXCEPT FOR ONE DCOM error. NO OTHER ERRORS EXCEPT THIS ONE, which I shall post here right now:

    The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
    {8D8F4F83-3594-4F07-8369-FC3C3CAE4919}
    and APPID
    {F72671A9-012C-4725-9D2F-2A4D32D65169}
    to the user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC) running in the application container Unavailable SID (Unavailable). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

    -I tried installing Windows 10 updates but got interrupted by yet another BSOD. The Event Viewer showed that this DCOM error occurred right after I clicked to update.

    -Like before, I tried fixing the DCOM error in the DCOM Config but, like before, everything is already checked for Local Activation and Local Launch. The odd thing is I can't reverse the ownership of F726 blah blah blah back to TrustedInstaller, which worries me because I don't want to screw anything up so I just stopped fiddling with DCOM Config and regedit.

    I'm completely beat a this point. I haven't slept well in the past two nights because this issue kept me up working on it. So I found this site and this is my one last cry for help.

    Attached are the necessary files. These are after the first reinstall though. If I should have one from my PC now after the clean slate, let me know. I'll get it later today after work.

    Final note: The BSOD is 99.99% of the time a kernel security check failure. I think only once or twice throughout the entire history of owning this PC was it something else, but I unfortunately never bothered to write it down (but I believe one was a driver error)

    Final final note: I can't remember if this was before or after the resurgence of blue screens this past summer, but I fell for using a driver update program called Driver Easy, or Booster, something stupid like that. It took me a couple weeks to realize it wasn't doing anything because it would say the same drivers it just updated were outdated for years, which didn't make sense. I hope that wasn't the reason or the catalyst in screwing things up. I mean, if I did a clean install and removed every single thing, wouldn't Driver Easy's effects be long gone by now?

    Both dumpfile are:

    This driver is from 2007 and (probably) not compatible with windows 10.
    Try to update to a windows 10 driver, else i suspect you need a other compatible windows 10 Wireless USB Network Adapter.

    Thanks for replying!

    The linksys link that you referenced isn't working for some reason. But I did go to the main site and I remember trying this already but unfortunately for my adapter model there's no update or firmware available. Linksys Official Support - Wireless-N USB Network Adapter

    This was another thing I noticed that I forgot to bring up. Earlier this year, my mom got a new Linksys router for the house. I still use the old adapter that was part of the series with the old router. Is that enough to cause a BSOD like this? Maybe I just need a new adapter all together since this one is very old. But if this is the case, how come I was able to download that game with ease in safe mode? Is it maybe that a Windows 10 program or process conflicts with my adapter in normal mode?

    I will try installing the other driver. If that doesn't work, I should probably then buy a much newer adapter right?

    Yes, i would buy a new adapter, i t is to old and gets only older and with a new adapter you will be future proof the next years.

    What about the safemode, i don't known maybe in safemode windows use a standard/different windows driver.

    Okay. . .so. . .I'm holding my breath here because I installed a new wireless adapter for Linksys. I now have a Linksys AC1200 Wireless Adapter. Model WUSB6300

    When the setup was finished, it got a little wonky. The wifi dropped and wouldn't turn back on. It's treated like a USB stick so I'm able to safely remove it. I did that and plugged it back in again and now it's working fine.

    However, Event Viewer is saying otherwise.

    It said: The WSWUSB6300 service is marked as an interactive service. However, the system is configured to not allow interactive services. This service may not function properly.(Event ID 7030).

    I searched for that error and I found a source that said I should go to Services then find the WSWUSB6300 service in the list and in the Properties uncheck "Allow service to interact with desktop." Not sure if that did anything.

    Twice Event 7031 came up saying: The WSWUSB6300 service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 5000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

    But the thing is I wasn't even aware that the service terminated because it was fine during that timestamp.

    I turned on Steam to download the game Doom yet again.

    IMMEDIATELY WHEN I DID THAT - the same old DCOM error popped up. So. . .here's hoping it's not the DCOM error after all.

    I noticed in the Application events it had this to say about my new adapter when it got all wonky after the setup:

    Faulting application name: WifiSvc.exe, version: 2.1.0.24, time stamp: 0x51e8ff33
    Faulting module name: WifiLib.dll, version: 2.1.1.22, time stamp: 0x5541f034
    Exception code: 0xc0000005
    Fault offset: 0x00003464
    Faulting process id: 0x1a34
    Faulting application start time: 0x01d24c2e7bf384e9
    Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Linksys WUSB6300\WifiSvc.exe
    Faulting module path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Linksys WUSB6300\WifiLib.dll
    Report Id: 3e89349d-7d31-442d-8a23-4b23a7e75fdc
    Faulting package full name:
    Faulting package-relative application ID:

    Again, after I plugged it back in again, it seems to be working fine. So maybe I just needed to do that in order for it to work. I already made sure it was updated with the Windows 10 driver. So theoretically there should be any conflict.

    So now I'm going to let Steam download Doom and hopefully come back a couple hours to see that nothing shut down.
