PaulM, thanks for the information and time that you put towards my inquiry. I definitely think if I change the DCOM security settings my issue will be resolved or at least one step closer. The problem I am having is that everytime I make a permission change, apply the change and press OK and then go back into it the settings are set back to default. Do you have any idea why my settings would be changing back? I am logged in as an administrator, but not as THE administrator.
