further faul logged also xp pro

The server {80EE4901-33A8-11D1-A213-0080C 88593A5} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout. also pc hangs within a few minutes of screensaver running, just seems to be one prob after another lately.

still trying to investigate, it seems that 'hanging' is connected with WMDM PMSP Service

what is it?

I don't know too much about XP, but I was in discussion with my son on the phone who was having this very error appearing when he was trying to install a printer. It turned out he had to activate the RPC server somewhere in settings before the printer would install. Not sure if this is of help?

Computers! What would we do without them :-) Good luck, hope you get it sorted.
