The Event Viewer in that gets me System Log errors always with the following details -

EventI 10004
Description: DCOM got error "Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password. " and was unable to logon Domain\Administrator in order to run the server: {179894D5-B853-4F32-A7C1-7B2E7F69D271}.

sounds to me as a service, that starts usually under the admin's accoun.

Check your services and correct the password if the account for the service is administrator.

I've already checked all services for my Admin account & manually changed the pwd. No luck yet.

A password that the DCOM account has been changed.

Did you change a password, say the administrator's, lately?

yes I did. I;ve changed the admin account password for all the Exchange, Backup Exec services where I could see the Admin as owner of the server. Now I can seem to find out where DCOM is still being used by the old admin password.
