I receive the following event entry:

Access denied attempting to launch a DCOM Server. The server is:
{2831B1FE-264C-40D4-ACB8-59D5C105AFAF}
The user is username/domain, SID=S-1-5-21-1644491937-1336601894-839522115-1145.

What on the users computer could be trying to start a DCOM server? What should I be looking for? 2000 server/Exchange 2000

Any ideas what could be causing this?

Run dcomcnfg and find your entry and look at the identity page.
