Error Windows can not query DLLname

Since yesterday I'm getting the error every 5-7 minutes "Description: Windows cannot query DllName registry entry for {696FED8A-263C-44C8-8195-A016BA48373D} and it will not be loaded. This is most likely caused by a faulty registration."
I looked it up in the registry (attached).  How do I fix this?

Did  you install or uninstall anything on the box since yesterday?   Are these 1041 errors in your logs?

That is an older article about CSEs

Didn't install anything.  There may have been a Microsoft update, but not sure.  Yes there are 1041 errors.  See attached

I'd first try to uninstall th update and see if the 1041s stop.  Since that is the only thing that changed on the system.

Is this a member server?

Thanks

I just checked add/remove and no updates have been installed since 3/20.  I also checked the logs and it first appeared at 6:27 am today.
It's is a DC

Can you check another DC to see if you have that CSE in the registry.   Since it is saying "value not set" it is probably another program or Microsoft service.

I see a lot of threads about IE but those are talking about a different GUID,  I don't want to tell you to delete it and cause issues.  I'll let you know if I find any specific info on that GUID.

Thanks

I haven't been able to find anything on that GUID, not on my DCs either.

I'm going to backup the registry and delete it.  I'll post results.

Because of your suggestion to check the other DC, I knew it could be deleted.

This is the Desktop Authority 32bit policy that is setup to install the client on machines within your domain.

I tracked this down while building a windows server 2003 box that was put in the wrong OU and our desktop authority policy hit it out of left field.

Thanks caltrolit!! We had a DC that got demoted then installed the DA client and when it got re-promoted to a DC again, it started screaming these errors at me!!  Your tip really saved me the a great deal of troubleshooting!!
