I also think that the activeds.tlb thing is a red herring. I'm not sure that
has anything to do with GP processing. That is a COM type library for ADSI.

Many times that is a result of some kind of corruption in the secedit.sdb
file. Recreating the file and re-importing the Setup Security.inf template
seems to fix those errors in most cases. See the following knowledge base
article for details:

Hi Everyone,

To clarify the problem I'm seeing I have included shots of the error
messages.  I have several users who have had the above mentioned errors in
the event viewer.  

Users see various problems when this happens.  Four people on the Helpdesk
could no longer create distribution lists in Outlook.  Another user was
getting the Firewall popup when he tried to use Exceed.  The exceptions for
Exceed were made over a year ago.  What this tells me is that the PC cannot
connect to get group policy. To fix the problems I import a regkey that
re-registers the activeds.tlb and then have the users do a gpupdate /force.
The event viewer then shows the Scecli 1704 which means all is well and
group policy is applied.  Helpdesk users can create distribution lists and
the server support person could use Exceed.  

Later the same day the antivirus software runs a scan; it comes up with 0
risks and number of files scanned.  About an hour later the next thing I see
is the SceCli 1202 and Userenv 1085 errors again.  When the antivirus is
turned off after the import regkey and gpupdate the machine works fine until
SAV turns itself back on.  IT Security says that it is not SAV.  What I'm
hoping for is someone who had a similar situation who can tell me what it
was and how they fixed it.  This first started 7/26/07.  We upgraded Acrobat
to 8.1 that morning and the day before the Microsoft security patches were

In one case that I've noticed, after a while SAV seems to fix the problem.
I had a user tell me that his app was working fine now but often that
happens and it will stop again.  Unfortunately, this SAV "fix" does not
happen on all machines.  

I have more information from yesterday.  It seems that once the activeds.tlb
is re-registered, even though the same exact errors are coming up; when SAV
runs the problem seems to be resolved.  For instance, an event viewer will
show the two errors and then SAV runs and we see the Scecli 1704.  See
picture below.

Any ideas? 

Thanks in advance for your help.
