Hello guys , im trying to disable dcom but i can't even get to the tab thru start>run>dcomcnfg ; there is an alert popup window telling me the file "dcomcnfg"(or one of its components) is missing.
Could someone help me fix this problem ? thx for your reactions !

Yes...don't un-install it. You need DCOM for all client server transactions under windows. You will be doing more harm than good.

DCOM is not a bad thing, I (if I were you) would just leave it alone. Cause one day may be today you will have an application that uses DCOM and it will squak at you.

Ok , as i stated before the file is missing , therefore my comp will still squak at me when an application will need dcom ; isn't it ?
how to restore this file without messing up my system is my question .
thx for your replies.
