Secure DCOM

Recommended Posts

DCOM is a a very little used technology that has been built into the

Windows operating system so as to allow the various software components

to inter-operate across any network... worms and viruses.... ;)


DCOM in Windows XP has always been a bad idea! It is a potential source

for trouble.


You see DCOM is a new name for the old OLE.


OLE (Object Linking and Embedding) was a bad idea that Microsoft tried to make happen... Now they call it DCOM...


How Do You Disable DCOM in Windows XP..?


1. Click Start menu, and then click the Run icon.


2. Then egedit then click the OK button.


3. You Must go to : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\OLE


4. Now You will see there is a String Value called: EnableDCOM


5. Set the value to: N (it should currently be Y)


6. Close the Registry Editor. Shutdown and Restart your computer.


7. That's it :)


Note: This has been tested only for LAN user's but it probebly work's anywere .


Good Luck.
