    Glad it did for you Qwinn, but it does NOT for me - continue with these darned errors as do many others in searching for a solution. I wish someone (preferably MS) would fix this - getting tired of messing with it.

    Microsoft cannot fix something that is installation related. I would do a clean install of Windows 10 or do further searching to see if it is common for that motherboard or computer to keep puking up that error.

    These DistributedCOM errors, with ID 10016, are very common and I get a couple myself, AppID {9CA88EE3-ACB7-47C8-AFC4-AB702511C276} included. If its not affecting anything is it really necessary to fix? If your answer is yes, read on.

    As its a common issue, you can find many solutions to this problem online. Most methods are manual however. Due to the popularity of the problem, Ive attached my own solution to this post in the form of script. Before running it you must find the AppID, its GUID, thats causing you trouble, and substitute it appropriately in the script. E.g.,
    Code:
    $appids = @(
        '{9CA88EE3-ACB7-47c8-AFC4-AB702511C276}',
        '{F72671A9-012C-4725-9D2F-2A4D32D65169}'
    )

    If youre into the command line, you can skim through DistributedCOM errors quickly with the objects returned by the following command. Also good to run if youre curious if you suffer from this problem as well. Look for 10016 in the Id column.
    Code:
    Get-WinEvent -ProviderName *DistributedCOM -MaxEvents 5
    Registry changes are backed up.


    That link is ancient.
