    Another DistributedCom Event 10016 Error!


    Need some detailed help with this one. I thought I had all the Event 10016 Errors cleared up (with a lot of help from this forum) but now this one popped up somewhere along the line. I have tried all the usual stuff that worked in the past but this one just won't go away. Every time I boot I get this error 8 or nine times. I running Windows 8.1 on several systems but seem to only have this issue on the one with an ASRock Z77 OC Formula MB and a 3770K CPU - if that means anything. Help would be much appreciated.

    Found a solution. Looks like it wanted my user name instead of "Administrator".
