COM+ Event System Errors in Application Log

    I'm running fully updated XP Home SP2. Numerous
    instances of Com+ Event System errors (details below)
    have recently started to fill my application log.
    They show repeated failures to remove an
    "EventSystem.EventSubscription" object. It looks as
    if the COM+ Event System is trying to delete
    something which is either not present or not
    accessible.

    The event which immediately preceded the first
    occurrence of the error was a reporting failure on a
    success audit (see below), which which might be
    related to the problem.

    I'm guessing that the errors are not particularly
    significant but I'd be very grateful if anyone can
    confirm this, and suggest a method of correcting
    whatever problem is causing their appearance?

    Each error message shows:

    Source: Event System
    Category (50)
    Event ID: 4621
    Description:
    The COM+ Event System could not remove the
    EventSystem.EventSubscription object {A5978620-5B3F-
    F1D1-8ED2-00FA0035B753}-{00000000-0000-0000-
    0000-000000000000}-{00000000-0000-0000-0000-
    000000000000}. The HRESULT was 80070005.

    The success audit reporting failure event looks like
    this:

    Source: OfficeUpdateV3
    Category: None
    Event ID: (0)
    Description:
    The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source
    ( OfficeUpdateV3 ) cannot be found. The local computer
    may not have the necessary registry information or
    message DLL files to display messages from a remote
    computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE=
    flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support
    for details. The following information is part of the
    event: V3_2|512156|INSTALL|WINWORD_6754_
    INTL||2005-04-17 5:20:04|9|SUCCESS|||.

    There is probably a service misconfiguration on your
    system -- most services require or rely on other services.
    You should check out your configurations. BlackViper
    appears to be down, so you will have to make do with
    a cached copy:

  3. Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately the startup
    configurations of COM+ Event System (Manual) and its
    interdependent services are all correct according to
    Black Viper. The only other services involved are Remote
    Procedure Call (RPC) which it depends on and is set
    to Automatic and and System Event Notification which
    is dependent on it and is also set to Automatic. I'm
    afraid it's back to the drawing board for me.

    I see. The only other thing that was obvious (to me) from
    the error message, was that WinWord was referenced,
    so my next step would be to uninstall Office/Word,
    completely remove the installation folder, reboot and
    then reinstall/upgrade (if necessary).

    trying to assist.

    I still think it's a services misconfiguration, but good luck.

    I found that starting the RPC Locater service eliminates the COM+ errors. I set this for Automatic startup so it starts with Windows startup.
