the configured protocols.

Event ID & the Event Source are very important.

To open the Event Viewer...
Start | Run | Type: eventvwr | Click OK

For any Events that seem related to the problem...

Double click the event in Event Viewer | Click: the button below the second
arrow (looks like two pages) [[Copies the details of the event to the
Clipboard.]] | Paste into Notepad | Also click on:

This can also be very useful.

You need to have the Event ID & the Event Source. Microsoft product: --All
Products-- is usually good enough. Be careful when scrolling down in the
page so that Microsoft product: doesn't change on you.

To view Windows XP Events and Errors, type the Source (for example, Print)
and/or the Event code (for example, 20) into the ID field, then click the Go
button. Source and Event codes may be found in the Event Viewer logs.

Thanks for the reply Wesley
Do you know what causes these errors, or is it normal to have them in the
event viewer?

This is the official Microsoft description of DCOM:

"The Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) is a protocol that enables
software components to communicate directly over a network in a reliable,
secure, and efficient manner. Previously called "Network OLE," DCOM is
designed for use across multiple network transports, including Internet
protocols such as HTTP. DCOM is based on the Open Software Foundation's
DCE-RPC spec and will work with both Java applets and ActiveX®
components through its use of the Component Object Model (COM)."

I have all these errors in my event viewer under system. It says the
source is DCOM
the error logs says the following: DCOM was unable to communicate with
the computer PC1 using any of the configured protocols.
I would just like to know what DCOM is.
Thanks
