I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

To Davis,
Does your fix another work for Event 10010 DistributedCOM and Event 10016 DistributedCOM as well?

Davis McCarnOwnerCommented:
No, it only changes the threshold for reporting the 10028 events.  The only methods I have seen to fix the rampant 10016 events compromise the system's security and I keep hoping that Microsoft will address them with a powershell script; but, that really ought to be a separate question.

Sounds like the Event 20016 DistributedCom does not have a solution at this time
