COM+ problem

March 23, 2010 at 16:58:08
Specs: Windows XP Home
MY computer was cleaned of malware but damage was done to some system components such as COM+. When my computer boots up I get multiple Event ID 10016 errors in the system Log. The description says the security issue can be resolved by using the COmponent Services tool. When I use that tool and try to open up the Computers folder, I get a series of COM+ System Application errors saying the service was terminated unexpectantly. I was thinking about using the process in MS article 315296 but don't know if that would solve the problem or not. Also, article 916254 describes the event IDs that I'm seeing but it deals with joining a computer to a domain which I didn't think was relative to XP home. Strange thing says the article is applicable to XP Home. If someone could help me ou, I'd sure appreciate it

Have you tried error checking?
Start - Run - Type - chkdsk /f

2. Start - Run - type - sfc /scannow - OK
Don't forget the space between c and /
You may need the Recovery CD if any thing is found wrong.
Don't insert unless asked for.

Microsoft has
I can't say if it would help.

I would go ahead and run the chkdsk /f
It takes about 35 minutes on my PC.

You could download hijackthis and post
a log on a hijackthis forum.
I use a website to analyze my hijack log
I don't know if this forum allows that to
be used here.

You can do a search in Microsoft Knowledge Base for.
COM+ System Application errors
Maybe someone will give you a good
answer. Without using System Recovery
but that's what I would do.
Save your Documents to a CD. It's possible some software will be lost, the
kind that comes free with your computer.
You should have Service Pack 3 on your computer. A Firewall - Antivirus -

I use this also.

I use Acronis and backup all of my hard drive to an Exterior hard drive.
If I had a problem like your having I can
use the Acronis CD to Boot and go straight to a full Recovery.
