DCOM event 10016 cannot change permissions in Component services

by on Oct.30, 2010, under Microsoft

I wrote about this event before here: dcom-event-10016 but this time it was bit different.
Even though I was changing the permission for the object in Component services the permissions were reverting back after couple minutes to what they were and it was resulting that the event 10016 was generated again. Apparently after applying some MS update the permissions on some Windows sub folder are changed. Specifically the permissions were changed on ‘%windir%/registration‘ folder(usually c:\windows\registration). Check the permissions of this folder and make sure that System user has full rights after that try changing the permissions on the object in Component services and see if it stays this time.
