Com+ Error on Server 2008

I'm running terminal services on server 2008 64 bit standard.  The server is a member of the domain and only holds a "File Services" and a "Terminal Services" role.  The event logs are generally clean with the exception of the following two errors which seem to be random and not tied to an specific events.

Log Name:  Application
Source:  EventSystem
Event ID: 4609
Level:  Error
User:  N/A
OpCode: Info

The COM+ Event System detected a bad return code during its internal processing.  HRESULT was 800700b7 from line 458 of d:\vistasp1_gdr\com\complus\src\events\tier2\eventsystem2.cpp.  Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services to report this error.

Log Name:  System
Source:  DistributedCOM
Event ID:  10010
Level:  Error
User:  N/A
OpCode: Info

The server {BDB57FF2-79B9-4205-9447-F5FE85F37312} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.

Now for the first error I've checked the permissions on the %windir%\system32\registration folder and they are correct.  I've run a virus scan and everything checks out ok.  Windows updates and patches have all been applied to the system.  

For the second I've tried to track down the GUID for the error with little luck.

Now it might be something small, but for the life of me I'm just not seeing it.  If anyone has any ideas or needs more information, just let me know.

I guess that no one out there can help, which to be honest is really disappointing.  I've been able to track down the DCOM error to internet explorer addon installer which I'm thinking may have to do with the fact that I'm running a 2008 server off a sbs 2003 r2 domain with the GPO being enforced from the DC.  

In talking with someone else I may just leave the issue as they don't appear to be causing any problems with the server.  If there is no further comments or suggestions by 12pm mountain time then I will be closing the question.

I have precisely the same error message being logged on a couple different instances of Server 2008 Enterprise SP1 x64.  Have also not been able to pin down the precise cause, but I agree it appears to be little more than an annoyance and does not seem to have any negative impact on the performance of the system.  I also have GP based restrictions on IE at play.

I've done further checking into this and from what I can determine it relates to the Internet Explorer Add-On Installer.  I believe that it has something to do with having a GP on IE on the server.  From what a fellow admin told me after checking out the error, we suspect that it's an actual coding problem itself in the system.  I however have not had the time or ability to call Microsoft to spend money to point this out to them.  

If I'm able to track something down, I will post here so that you can hopefully get it fixed as well.
