I got a call from someone saying my computer was infected. I eventually realized that this was probably a scam, but one of the things he led me to was the event viewer, where there were a bunch of error messages, mainly the 10016 one. here is what the message says...

The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
{D63B10C5-BB46-4990-A94F-E40B9D520160}
and APPID
{9CA88EE3-ACB7-47C8-AFC4-AB702511C276}
to the user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC) running in the application container Unavailable SID (Unavailable). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.


Is this something that I need to worry about, a virus perhaps? If so, how do I resolve this issue?

It's usually no problem. If you absolutely need to troubleshoot: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/.../cc751272.aspx

it shows up about 3-4 times a day, I just want to make sure its not part of a virus or something. I recently Re-installed windows since I saw seeing about 30 of these a day. Hoping that my computer is safe is all.

It shouldn't be a security issue. It's a question of Admin gaining control. I'd leave it alone, but it can be changed in the Registry.
