Strange title, I know. But don't worry, I'll attempt to explain.... So, I have/had a thread in the general hardware section in regards to a network interface card and it's drivers. That's been put on hold temporarily.... So, for the last week I've been noticing little freezes when working with any software the requires internet. These freezes only last a few seconds. While trying to figure out wtf I can't reinstall NIC drivers, I decided to take a glance at Event Viewer. There were hundreds of errors and warning logged. I've gotten it down to 3, in total. There is the usual Event ID 10016 from DCOM. There's also Event ID 2002 from PerfProc and Event ID 2004 from PerfNet. After hours upon hours of searching, I've found no remedy for the PerfProc and PerfNet errors. MS says that Event ID 10016 from DCOM is common and benign. However, in my particular case..... Every time Event ID 10016 is logged, it corresponds to a freeze. To me, that doesn't appear benign.... This thread will be monitored until Saturday evening, January 25, 2020..... No solutions by then, I'll just wipe the system and start over...again. I've been working on fixing errors for 2 days, what's another 2 days? Right?
