Do a clean install.

Hi, I have the exact same error with a perfectly clean Windows 8 installation ! On the first day of life of this Win8 system the error already appeared. So I doubt that the Problem comes from the "upgrade install".

But I agree to stay away from upgrade installs.

So I searched a little and here's what I found:

a) {D63B10C5-BB46-4990-A94F-E40B9D520160} and APPID {9CA88EE3-ACB7-47C8-AFC4-AB702511C276} refers to RuntimeBroker.exe

b) RuntimeBroker.exe is : What is the RuntimeBroker.exe process in Windows 8? - Super User

c) To resolve the problem refer to (source: Event ID 10016, DistributedCOM: The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application (2) - Share iT… )

Warning: changing "owner" is slightly different on Win8, so here some screenshots under Win8:

1) Changing REG permission:

2) Changing DCOM permission:

Add system user and give rights like screenshot

Hope this helps.
