Event 10016 DCOM Error - Windows 10 Redstone 3 (October 2017)

I just did a clean installation on two computers and I am getting this error.

When I search for the information it states different things. When I go to the Runtime Broker Properties it shows it has an unrecognized type. (see picture)

Here is the output

I have this version on my own and client computers and do see this. What AV are you running? What legacy software might you be running?

Uninstall the AV and try a different product. It appears to be incompatible with the newest version of Windows 10 and that is not uncommon.

Consider using Windows Defender. It is solidly excellent on Windows 10 V1709.

Paul QuintanaOwnerAuthor Commented:
Hmm. I just bought it for this install.

But check this out.

When you made me list products that helped me think.

I narrowed it down to Google Chrome - every time I launch it throws this error... but not when closing

I disabled Avira and quit malwarebytes and put Chrome in Incognito mode, and even disabled plug ins

it still throws the error on launch

Thanks John!
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Try the same approach and try Edge instead of Chrome. Any change?
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Also ask the vendor for a patch . They may have seen the issue
Paul QuintanaOwnerAuthor Commented:
Nothing with Edge, launching with no error. I love Chrome though and have everything synced to it. It seems to also run fine too.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Chrome may have an issue with the product. I do suggest contacting the AV Vendor as it now appears to be AV and Chrome and not related specifically to Windows 10 .

Why do you think it is not just chrome? Because I disabled Avira and got that error.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Perhaps I was not clear enough. I think the issue is with Chrome.

AV digs itself into Windows Subsystems.

1. Make sure Windows Defender Real Time scanning is OFF.
2. Try completely uninstalling Avira, restarting and testing Chrome that way.

You can always reinstall Avira.

I did my best to read the error lines but it seems to be a conflict to me with Avira.
Paul QuintanaOwnerAuthor Commented:
Thanks for the time once again.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Thanks. I am am always around, so if you need more help / post another question I will try my best to help.

I setup Firefox to import Google Chrome passwords and such, removed Chrome from PC, I don't get 10016 error on launch of Browser anymore.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Thank you for the update. That seems to have eliminated the conflict.
Why is this question closed? You don't want to abandon your favorite browser just because of some event log entry. Chrome works, although the log entry shows - who cares? The windows event log is no good way of looking at the health of a computer. For ages, many of the errors shown could be neglected without any negative effect - same here.

Microsoft has indicated that this is a problem with their latest version of windows but their instructions fail for me, too: https://support.microsoft.com/en-ph/help/4022522/dcom-event-id-10016-is-logged-in-windows-10-and-windows-server-2016  - yes, I use chrome, too, from time to time and yes, on win10 v1709 I see the same error even after following microsoft's advice and overcoming the error in dcomcnfg about some "unrecognized type".

So conclusion: use chrome. And don't think that your AV matters here - there is no indication that it is even involved. I don't use external AV software but still the "error" shows in eventlog on each launch of chrome.
