Hi, I'm trying to fix problems on my windows 7 ultimate pc. I keep getting DHCP, DCOM, and Print Spooler errors in rapid succession. I believe that they're related because they occur within one second of each other, often causing restarts. I was trying to follow the post by Gobraman but I dont have HTTP listed under services.msc. Would someone please help?

I see a reinstall of the OS in your future! A fresh install, not an overlay.

You mean HTTP SSL?

Whenever I had Printer Spooler issues, I had to reinstall the OS.

I looked into the problems, tried suggested tweaks, but in the end, re-installed the OS.

The root of my problems was incompatible printer driver for Windows 7. Lexmark didn't make Win7 drivers for the printer I had, nor would Win 7 let me install the Lexmark software, etc. Forced me to buy a new printer, which was better in the long run anyway!

Eventually, I'm sure, that's what it'll come down to. It'll be my fourth or fifth install but like you, have 2 SSDs in RAID 0 which I'm sure are gunked up from all the install/uninstalls I've done to try to get this system running right. For the record, I have an HP Photosmart e-station C510A, and HP only releases new drivers in their bloatware driver packages. One thought, my printer is assigned IP 192.186.1.2 whereas my PC is assigned 192.186.1.4. Shouldn't the PC obtain the IP first then distribute it to the printer??? Just a thought...

PS: This printer also comes with the Zeen tablet which occupies IP 192.186.1.3.

Or does my Netgear WNR2000v2 do all of the distribution? Just seems that with the errors grouped together like they are, the PC's DHCP and DCOM are getting po'd and throwing errors....?

I think the router distributes the IP, I say, I think. You could also "reset" your router, with everything off, and start up stuff (PC, Tab, Printer) one at a time to get the IP addresses "in order." But it really doesn't matter.

If, and when you do the re-install, make sure you "Secure Erase" the drive, to blank out all the cells. This is different than format, and better for a SSD.

Since your SSDs are in a RAID array, I'd use the Linux version of Secure Erase, from the OCZ website, if you have OCZ SSDs. Else, you'll have to un-set the array, and boot up a different way to run Secure Erase thru Windows (e.g. on another PC?).

You "could" run the "clean all" command from the Windows install/recovery disk, but like formatting, this writes to the entire drive, whereas SE blanks it. Neither will work if the drives are still set in an array.

Good Luck.

You're ok there. Your router (or other DHCP server) is responsible for distributing and keeping track of IP addresses. There's nothing wrong with your IP address assignments.

Thanks aicom, and thanks also to you foscooter. Think I finally tracked it down without the reinstall. I set both the WLAN and WWAN autoconfig to automatic and it seems "fingers crossed" that I've finally gotten rid of my errors.

Btw, HTTP is a system file, not a service.......my bad.
