How to Fix Event ID 10016, DistributedCOM Windows.SecurityCenter.WscBrokerManager Error in Windows 10

Monday, December 17, 2018 0

Hi Folks!

I am back today with another solution to a common problem. It seems every time Microsoft releases an update to Windows 10, Your event log is full of Event ID 10016 Errors. these errors range from issues with Windows Security Center, to general DCOM Errors involving Shell host.

Now according to Microsoft, some of these DCOM Errors are by design and are harmless. To quote the recent Microsoft DCOM Event ID 10016 is logged in Event Viewer Knowledge Base article:

These 10016 events are recorded when Microsoft components tries to access DCOM components without the required permissions. In this case, this is expected and by design.

A coding pattern has been implemented where the code first tries to access the DCOM components with one set of parameters. If the first attempt is unsuccessful, it tries again with another set of parameters. The reason why it does not skip the first attempt is because there are scenarios where it can succeed. In those scenarios, that is preferable.
