    Persistent Event Viewer Error

    I'm getting the following event viewer error every 15-30 minutes whenever a non-admin account is logged in:

    The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
    and APPID
    to the user XX\YY SID (S-1-5-21-1462133472-353174448-3584519177-1002) 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've tracked the AppID down to RuntimeBroker. I've found a few posts mentioning a similar error for this application under windows 8, and suggesting changing the security settings as described. When I try to do this though, all the settings for RuntimeBroker are disabled, and cannot be customised. I've tried launch the admin tool as administrator, but it's still locked down.

    Any ideas?

    Same here, except I'm running an Administrator account. :P

    You guys could try this.

    Remember to favorite the location of the edit in regedit so you know where to go if it needs changing.

    To solve the DCOM error follow the instructions given by Vaio 7 in this thread:

    Windows 10 Event ID 10010 and 10016 Errors With DistributedCOM

    Worked for me on several installs.

    With all the rushing about over christmas I never got round to following it up. Just looked now though, and I'm still getting the error in the logs. The solution I tried was the link from swarfega. This allowed me to change the permissions in the DCOM config for the class in question. I'm not sure why that hasn't done the trick, as I was expecting it to work. There are a whole bunch of these errors for different components when my wife's account is logged in. I'll have to have another look when I can find some time!

    By the way, I THINK I'm getting the error message when I shut down as part of restart. Not when I start up again. It's an error in the shut-down process, I think. Wonder what that means.

    Just checked, and mine are not related to a shutdown or restart, nor any sleep related events. I also noticed that I might have spoken too soon - my wife's account no longer gets the RuntimeBroker errors (though she does get others), it's the account "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM" that is still triggering them. So it looks like the linked solution does fix the problem (which is what you'd expect) but I need to do it for some more accounts and some more components. Now I know it fixes it though, it's worth going through and making the effort

    kev and others - confirmed that I am getting the error messages when I shut down my Win 10, not when i start it. Weird.
