The server could not load DCOM

Hi everyone.
I'm having a problem in a SQL Server 2000, SP4.
Here is the explanation:

I'm trying to run dbcc checktable ('myTable') in a query analizer window and i'm getting the following error:

ERROR 7404: The server could not load DCOM.

I'll appreciate any help you can give me.
This is very important for the performance of my system. So, i'm a in a little hurry.
Thank you very much!!!

i tried google, and not much came up. here's one you might want to check

Google searches range from DCOM being corrupted, privacy software causing issues, network problems and the DTS package having invalid transformations causing the problem.

are you on SP4?
yes you are on SP4 sorry.
I haven't ever seen the DCOM error but similar "unable to determine if the owner...." errors can be due to issues with
the owner of the job. Try changing it to a sysadmin login. You may also want to check your SQL Server and Agent error
logs - for any additional information. Other issues can be due to the service account that SQL Server Agent runs

i've tried changing the owner to sysadmin to all of the possible ways. I thought like you. But nothing.
Something to open your mouht: there are no errors in the server or Agent logs.
I've tried looking for them in Windows Event Viewer.... nothing at all.

Thenks a lot for your quick answers.
