  • Question

  • I am getting a rather large number of these DistributedCOM errors in the system's error logs.

    - <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">
    - <System>
      <Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-DistributedCOM" Guid="{1B562E86-B7AA-4131-BADC-B6F3A001407E}" EventSourceName="DCOM" />
      <EventID Qualifiers="0">10010</EventID>
      <TimeCreated SystemTime="2018-12-20T20:11:53.125551200Z" />
      <Correlation />
      <Execution ProcessID="1068" ThreadID="4076" />
      <Security UserID="REMOVED" />
    - <EventData>
      <Data Name="param1">{7966B4D8-4FDC-4126-A10B-39A3209AD251}</Data>

    Regedit search revealed that the "WebPlatStorageBrokerServer" is the AppID "{7966B4D8-4FDC-4126-A10B-39A3209AD251}"


    I did find this post on another forum with a suggestion that the question be asked here...


    any suggestion as to what this may actually be?

  • That is a negative on McAfee, seems you found the same info I did....

    Additional info... 

    The file is  .dll - C:\Windows\System32\webplatstorageserver.dll it is located on other directories but this one seems to be the operative location. I'm still digging into this issue, any assist is greatly appreciated...
