Event ID: 10009 - fixing DCOM error

I keep getting this message every 45 seconds in my Event Viewer under System.  "FRONTOFFICE" in the error message is the name of one of the workstations.  This error is also occuring with one other workstation.  We have a total of six workstations and the error message only involves trying to connect to two other workstations.  It also seems a though the error message has been going on for weeks also.

My questions is though how do I find out what is trying to communicate with my other workstations?  How do I stop this computer from attempting to communicate if not necessary or how to correct the problem so that they can communicate properly and so that this error does not keep reoccuring?

Check this:

Windows XP

    * Using the registry editor, set

"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\
Parameters\MaintainServerList"
 

      to NO.

That way the pc won't act as master browser.

I turned off the DCOM but and the error looks as though it is no longer being recorded in the event viewer but by turning this off will I be shutting off any other things that may be running on my computer?  Basically did I just stop it from creating that error or did I just stop it from doing a specific action that was not suppose to occur.

No most of the user does not use dcom unless you want to use dcom,

So if most users are not using dcom then why are the minority of users using dcom?  I'm going to check one more time to make sure the dcom message no longer appears.

Since turning off this DCOM these are the two "Warning" messages I'm getting now.
