how to fix dcom in windows xp sp3?

I see....  Is that all you need?
If this question were any more specific, I'd say our brains would spin!  ;-)

Check here first:

Start > Run > type in "MMC" and click Ok.

Click File > Add/remove snap-in > Click the Add button.

Select "Component Services" and click Add.  Click Close and click OK.

Expand out Component Services.  Expand out Computers.  Expand out My Computer.  Right click My Computer and click Properties.

Select the Default Properties tab and make sure the check box is checked that reads:
"Enable Distributed COM on this computer"

That's step 1.  Step 2 is make sure permissions are set so you can utilize it.  Click the COM Security tab and go through the Access permissions and the Launch and Activation Permissions.
