DCOM 10009

    Approx. every 30 seconds I am getting a DCOM 10009 error stating "DCOM was
    unable to communicate with the computer toshiba using any of the configured
    protocols". I searched around the Knowledge Base and Newsgroup and found very
    little help. In one MKB article it suggested looking at
    HKeylocal_Machine/SW/MS/RPC/DCOM. Unfortunately, I do not have a DCOM folder
    within RPC.

    I do not have any Toshiba PC's on my network. The only Toshiba device that I
    do have is a networked Toshiba printer/copier.

    Any assistance in helping to resolve this problem would be greatly

    I uninstalled and reinstalled the network printer and the DCOM error flows
    the device. As soon as the device is installed I start to get DCOM error
    messages every 30 seconds. This is a recent occurance and I'm wondering if it
    is associated to one of the recent security updates.

    Again, any assistance would be appreciated.

    This probably doesnt help, but I get the same error when I shutdown one of
    the computers on my domain. The only difference is that it replaces "Toshiba"
    with the computer name. Someone told me that some of the blaster viruses mess
    with DCOM so I tried running the Blaster removal tools. This didnt help. I
    ran all updates on the workstation, again to no avail.

    The workstation functions fine, and other than the fact that every time I
    shut down that workstation I get this error message every 53 seconds until my
    event log is full it doesn't appear to disturb any functionality of either
    the server or the workstations. I hope one of us figures out this message, or
    someone has a better suggestion.

    Some details: I only get the error when the computer is shut down, it doesnt
    appear to give me the error when the computer is logged off or in use. The
    server is running Windows 2003 Server and the workstation is running Windows
    XP Professional.
