A small law firm with 8 computers has two computers randomly freezing when on a government website. Ay the time one froze this morning the application event log showed an error WMI  event id 10. At about the same time the system event log showed an error DCOM event id 10016. I had previously made an adjustment in the DCOM security settings according to Microsoft kb hoping this would alleviate the problem no joy. HELP!

Login As admin see if the error happens, if not it is a user permission issue where you will need to grant the user(s) permission to run the the COM component

Provide permission on the affected computers

1. Click Start -> Run -> Type -> dcomcnfg, expand Component Services -> Computers -> My Computer -> DCOM Config.
2. Click View -> Detail -> Now you will get Application Name and Application ID in right side.
3. Scroll down and find the application ID {344ED43D-D086-4961-86A6-1106F4ACAD9B
 Right Click -> Properties and select the Security tab.
3. Click Customize under "Launch & Activation Permission" -> click Edit -> Add in the account NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM and set local launch and local activation.
