    Hi john_mm,

    The Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) is a protocol that enables software components to communicate directly over a network. Previously named "Network OLE," DCOM is designed for use across multiple network transports, including Internet protocols such as HTTP. More information about DCOM, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc958799.aspx

    Warning If you disable DCOM, may you may lose operating system functionality. After you disable support for DCOM, the following may result:

    • Any COM objects that can be started remotely may not function correctly.
    • The local COM+ snap-in will not be able to connect to remote servers to enumerate their COM+ catalog.
    • Certificate auto-enrollment may not function correctly.
    • Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) queries against remote servers may not function correctly.

    For more details, you could refer to this link :

    Hi john_mm,

    It meanis, if you disable DCOM, it will affect the following settings in your pc:

    • Any COM objects that can be started remotely may not function correctly.
    • The local COM+ snap-in will not be able to connect to remote servers to enumerate their COM+ catalog.
    • Certificate auto-enrollment may not function correctly.
    • Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) queries against remote servers may not function correctly.

    Please confirm whether your site is related to these, if there is no contact, your site will not be affected.

    Best Regards,

    YongQing.
