I'm just going to copy and paste what I posted at another tech site..

DCOM got error "The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. " attempting to start the service StiSvc with arguments "" in order to run the server:

Type: Error
Source: DCOM
EventID: 10005

I get that A LOT. The majority of my errors are from this and I want to know what it is and how to fix it. I looked ALL over hte place, microsoft seemed to think it had something to do with IIS but I don't have that installed. I tried translated sites from google, russian to english, and all I got out of it was that I think he did a windows restore.

I have all my patches right now, Windows XP SP1. I'm not running too many applications, just AIM and Opera pretty much, I have my antivirus (AVG) disabled right now and my firewall (kerio).

Even as I type this more errors have popped up on the event viewer.

Someone pleaseee help

It sounds like you're running some kind of Microsoft server that is giving you problems. A lot of information comes up when doing a search for some of the terms you mentioned. At Microsoft this one comes up:

Maybe you need to get the latest patch for whatever Microsoft server you are running, or it is just an issue they haven't fixed. Are you running something called "Microsoft Operations Manager 2000"?

I'm not running any kind of server, thanks for the reply though.

Sometimes Microsoft comes with servers running by default on the computer. I recall finding that out when I discovered by monitoring my TCP/IP activity, that a program was listening on port 5000 of my computer. I was worried it was a trojan, but it turned out to be a server which runs called SSDPSRV that is used for plug & play. Some of those servers which are turned on by default have security vulnerabilities which have been discovered later. See this Microsoft warning:

You can change the services running on your computer by going to Start--> Programs--> Administrative Tools--> Services. To disable a service there, edit the properties and change the Startup type to "disabled".

Make sure you've gotten the latest critical patches from Windows Update (http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/default.asp).
