    Event ID 10016, DistributedCOM Windows.SecurityCenter.WscBrokerManager


    Updated to 1803 17134.1 without a problem but one error - Distributed COM event ID 10016.
    Experienced this event ID many times previously and have fixed by changing permissions in Registry but this one has no known CLSID/APPID.

    "The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Launch permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
    and APPID
    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 am guessing this is nothing serious but I just can not stand an error showing in Event Viewer.
    Your advises much appreciated.

    Search for the GUID in regedit.exe instead. You may learn something interesting. That's about all you have to go on, really.

    Yes, get rid of the error by going into the Event Viewer and clicking on the event then click on the details tab and then finally the (+) symbol next to System. The GUID will be revealed and just simply copy and paste it into the Registry Search function with the "Keys" checkbox ticked and delete the GUID wherever it appears in the Registry.

    My GUID appeared in two locations in the registry and I deleted both without harm being done to Start Up and booting procedures.

    Make sure you have a backup of the Registry first, that you get through the Command Prompt in the Recovery environment just in case anything should go wrong.

    Thank you for your suggestions EdTittel and EyeInTheSky, and also Brink for the code box stuff.

    Since then I disabled the log so to ignore it for now.
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\WMI\Autologger\EventLog-System\{1b562e86-b7aa-4131-badc-b6f3a001407e} changed the Enabled value data to 0.

    I still don't know what it is so I'll continue looking for explanation and solution.

    Confirming. 1803 Pro here; same error message. Past 'mega threads' on 10016 did not address the error where no CLSID/APPID is shown. This is new with 1803.

    Hello, EdTittel and borgus.

    I have not been searching for the explanation/solution full time however unable to find anyone who has the same error.
    I am somewhat relieved that the error is not an isolated case!

    Marked this thread as unsolved.

    You might want to do a search on these forums for other threads, there have been a couple of mega threads in the past relating to this error.

    like I've pointed out in a few threads previously.. this error is nothing to worry about.. unless your really having computer problems.. avoid looking at event viewer as it will show errors no matter what you do. it's pretty normal.

    Hello, swarfega.

    I have to agree with borgus regarding this error is new to the latest Windows 10 1803.
    Please note we are talking about this particular error Event ID 10016 Windows.SecurityCenter.WscBrokerManager and not event ID 10016 in general with other CLSID/APPID.
    I see there was a thread started by EyeInTheSky 3 weeks ago re Windows.SecurityCenter.WscDataProtection
    DistributedCOM Error. Solved - Windows 10 Forums
    I'm sure this is pretty similar to our problem here.
    If I am missing something somewhere, please point us to the thread/post you mentioned above.
