Hi.  I have a user who is getting an event error about not having permission to start a dcom service.  I found the CLSID in the registry and am trying to grant permission through component services/ dcom config but I can't figure out what the friendly name is.  The edit string for the registry value in question is C:\PROGRAM FILES\COMMON FILES\MICROSOFT SHARED\VS7DEBUG\MDM.EXE.  I know MDM.exe is a program debug tool and I think the VS7debug is related to Symantec but how can I figure out which service I need to grant authority to?   thanks:)   Here is error:  
The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
{0C0A3666-30C9-11D0-8F20-00805F2CD064}
 to the user VAL-MATIC\ted SID (S-1-5-21-277630637-651963199-1252928729-1040).  This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

Open RegEdit.exe

Do a find (Ctrl-F) and enter {0C0A3666-30C9-11D0-8F20-00805F2CD064}

You should find a floder underneath HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\

Expand that folder. You should find a sub-folder named ""ProgID". There it is!
