    That is a fairly generic message. Try to figure out what process is actually causing it. Search the Registry for that key (should be in HKCR\CLSID) and you should be able to find the freindly name for that component.

    These DCOM errors indicate a permissions issue with the specific component.  The GUID indicates the component that is having a problem.  You can look through the comments on this page to see if anything applies:

    Sometimes if it's a component registration problem, just opening the Component Services mgmt. console will force a registration of the component and that will fix the problem.

    Basically, if your GUID isn't there, you need to go the the registry:


    and search for the GUID.  The information in that key will tell you what service or component is not working properly.  Once you have that information, post back and maybe someone can help further.  Or if it's a 3rd party component, you could contact the software mfr. and see if they can help you out.
