• Events log warning


    I have had my Dell 8920 PC freeze and then after several minutes blank the monitor to black twice in the past month; the second was time last week. After waiting 10 minutes, I used a hard shutdown and reboot to being it back. Looking at the event viewer now the only warnings from them or before under System are Distributed COM ones. The three most recent say:

    The machine-default permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
    and APPID
    to the user [deleted for this post]\[deleted for this post] SID (S-1-5-21-1954902055-1420940850-1905063448-1002) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC) running in the application container Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost_10.0.19041.3636_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy SID (S-1-15-2-155514346-2573954481-755741238-1654018636-1233331829-3075935687-2861478708). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

    (I normally use only  a user account, not the admin one, as in these cases.)

    I have no idea what the warning means or what a distributed COM is. Any help appreciated.

      that warning is very common and not an issue

      I guess the problem lies elsewhere…

        This is unlikely to be the cause of  your freezes, however you could check the Task Manager Startup tab.  Check for new and unnecessary apps starting on boot.  Disable them.  The can always be re-enabled.

      It may have been a video driver being updated on your system.

      The video driver may be crashing (driver reset after no response; TDR crash), how old is the computer?

      Thermal paste/grease can dry out after a few years, and may cause weird random problems like this. (Thermal pads also can become less effective after long term use.) Heat pipes or sinks should be warm to the touch as a sign the heat is being conducted away from the CPU/GPU.

      Also RAM may be going bad, it too could possibly cause a problem because most modern computer with integrated graphics share the system memory.

      Power supply wattage may be undersized for your workloads, also that causes weird side effects or hard resets.

      Windows own released version of Video drivers can be very bad for you because that may the wrong version and are other wise mismatched, hopefully Windows’s ability to install drivers from Windows update has been stopped for the peace of your mind.
