VSS:  Event ID:8193: Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine CoCreateInstance.  hr = 0x80040206.

Event System: Event ID: 4609  The COM+ Event System detected a bad return code during its internal processing.  HRESULT was 800706ba from line 45 of d:\vistartm\com\complus\src\events\tier1\eventsystemobj.cpp.  Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services to report this error.

you need to disable the volume shadowing option, this might solve the trick.

in case the error goes on, i suspect for it to be a problem with your hard drive. what happened before this problem started??

I am having the same problem on a few mashines running vista. How do i disable the volume shadowing.

The computers are part of a small business server 2003 domain. It only happens when you work offline like at home. Very weird. Never happens at the office when connected to the damain,

Volume Shadow Copy is a service. You can go there and take a look at it and STOP, START or RESTART if necessary. You could also set it to Automatic startup instead of Manual.

Is your CONTROL PANEL - SYSTEM AND MAINTENANCE - SYSTEM - ADVANCED SETTINGS - STARTUP AND RECOVERY - SYSTEM FAILURE set for Automatically Restart?

If so - UNCHECK ITt - this way you get a BSOD and can see the stop codes and program that is actually causing the error.

It possibly may not be the Volume Shadow Copy because a shutdown may not give the system event time to log what is the actual culprit before it dies.
