I am getting the following event on a laptop running Windows 7 Pro and on my server running Windows server 2008 r2.  I have tried to locate a solution to this problem but the articles I read state review the settings and correct them... not sure what they should be..

I also eventually get an Event ID of 18210

Log Name:      Application
Source:        Microsoft-Windows-COMRuntime
Date:          8/28/2014 12:00:43 PM

Keywords:      Classic
User:          LOCAL SERVICE

The machine-default permission settings do not grant Local access permission to the COM Server application C:\windows\Explorer.EXE with APPID
 to the user NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE SID (S-1-5-19) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.
