It feels good to be back after such a long hiatus! Today we are going to go over an error I have noticed pop up on Windows 10 with the Anniversary and the Creators Update. This error can cause Windows Login to take much longer then it should, and it fills your Windows Event Viewer up with a bunch of annoying red error warnings. So how to we fix this issue?

1. What Causes this error? - This error appears to be caused because Windows does not grant the user account logging into the system the appropriate user rights and permissions, in this case Local Activation permissions, for the DCOM object in question. This creates an unnecessary error condition causing it to re-try multiple times until its successful activating under the System authority account. This will probably be fixed in a future Microsoft Optional update or Hotfix patch later down the road, but until that time comes lets fix it.

2. How do we fix this error? To fix this error, follow the steps and screenshots below.

* Go to your search box and type "Regedit" and select it from the Search box and press Enter.

* In the Regedit Window Navigate to the Following Registry keys:

Take Ownership of those two keys, and give the Administrators Group Full Control Permissions (See Screenshots Below

For simplicity,  navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID and HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID respectively, and then make sure the folder is highlighted, and then use the "Find" command under the edit menu and paste in the CLSID(Bolded part of the key path above) into the search box ) to make finding the key easier

*Right click the Registry Key with the CLSID listed above select "Permissions" in the Permissions Window Click "Advanced"

Change the permissions of the Registry Key to Administrators Group, and give yourself "Full Control"

*Next we have to edit the DCOM Permissions for Wsearch. To do so, Type DCOM into the windows Search box by the start menu.

*Open the Component Services, Double-Click on "Computers" and then  Double Click "My Computer, and then Double Click "DCOM Config"

*Scroll Down and find Wsearch(you will see the CLSID ID next to it matches) Right-Click on it and "Properties" Go to the "Security Tab" and then Click "Edit" Next to the "Launch and Activate Permissions" section and add the Administrators group to it and give it Local Activation and Launch permissions.

*Next Highlight your user account(that will now show up because you added the administrators group) and Check the Boxes next to "Local Launch" and "Local Activation"

Restart your computer. Your done.

This should resolve any issues with the error. This error may come back with future Windows Updates, and if it does you can repeat the steps here to fix it. You may still get this error every now and then, but it won't be 4-5 of them in a row like it is now, and you should notice a good difference in your login times on your PC.

I hope this helps someone out there, Thanks for reading!
