DCOM Errors in Event Viewer

Alright so our Event Viewer is filling up with DCOM Errors. I cleaned up most of them because there were old/duplicate entries in DNS for machines that no longer exist or that had registered under different IPs.

Unfortunately, one that registered yesterday is now producing those errors because the gentleman is off today and his computer is shutdown.

Are we able to stop these from coming up some how?

See below for sample error:

Log Name:      System
Source:        Microsoft-Windows-DistributedCOM
Date:          3/23/2012 11:08:42 AM
Event ID:      10009
Task Category: None
Level:         Error
Keywords:      Classic
User:          N/A
Computer:      DC1.xxxxxx.local
Description:
DCOM was unable to communicate with the computer COMPUTERNAME.xxxxxx.local using any of the configured protocols.

Why would this be considered a serious critical problem if it happens all the time?

And yes this is SBS 2008.
