COM+ Event System error every few minutes

My OS is Windows XP Home SP2 (fully updated)

In Event viewer / Application, I get the following warning every few minutes:

Event Type: Warning
Event Source: EventSystem
Event Category: (52)
Event ID: 4356
Date: 15/02/2007
Time: 13:58:05
User: N/A
Computer: PECO
Description:
The COM+ Event System failed to create an instance of the subscriber partition:{41E90F3E-56C1-4633-81C3-6E8BAC8BDD70}!new:{58FC39EB-9DBD-4EA7-B7B4-9404CC6ACFAB}. CoGetObject returned HRESULT 80040154.

What does this mean? How can I solve this problem? Does the COM+ Event System have to be running on my PC or can I disable this service? I understand that it relates to SENS - what is that and do I need it running too? What is the meaning of life in the context of a runaway universe? (These and other questions are confusing me right now!)

:whistling:

uhhm ... thanks, but this Microsoft article is way over my head. I get the impression that it applies to a computer that's part of a network attached to a server (?) I'm a home user with an ADSL Internet connection. Is my PC a client computer? (I'm a complete rookie, you see!). Also, my error is different to the one quoted in the Microsoft hotfix article, which has this description:

"The COM+ Event System failed to create an instance of the subscriber {C2F23AE4-82D8-456F-A4AF-A2655D8CA726}. StandardCreateInstance returned HRESULT 8000401A."

My error message has this description:

"The COM+ Event System failed to create an instance of the subscriber partition:{41E90F3E-56C1-4633-81C3-6E8BAC8BDD70}!new:{58FC39EB-9DBD-4EA7-B7B4-9404CC6ACFAB}. CoGetObject returned HRESULT 80040154."

So even if I was clever enough to apply the hotfix (just reading the instructions turns my brain to scrambled egg), I doubt whether it is the right one!

Again: What is the COM+ Event System and do I need it running at all? And what is SENS?

(The meaning of life may have once been 42, but since Adams died, the universe has run away ... a long way away!)

Interesting! I turned System Restore off, rebooted and then turned it on again, and now I'm not getting those error messages any more. Does that make sense? (What is a "subscriber partition" anyway, and what's the possible link with System Restore? Does COM+ Event System have any connection with System Restore?)

Yes, thanks, I'd read that article too. The event ID is the same as mine, but the HRESULT is different (I've no idea what that means, but thought I should point it out). Anyway, I'm no longer getting those application warnings. As I said before, they stopped after I turned off System Restore (thereby deleting all system restore points) and turned it on again. I don't even know whether whatever was initially causing the warnings was something to really worry about. It's all Greek to me! :whistling:
