    Hi, This is a very common error for Win10, I think almost everyone gets it but if you search around it is not one that affects anything really.
    There are workarounds to fix it but IMO not worth trouble.

    DistributedCOM error 10016
    "The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID"

    Do not bother with this event. Many guys bricked their Windows trying to fix it toying with permissions. Me included.
    And MS people stated that this is not critical error.

    Do you use google chrome? If so then should be able to solve it by giving the Users group local activation permissions in the Runtime broker section in Component Services. This is how I solved that error, it was coming up every time Chrome was launched fresh.
