One More Riddle Clue (Maybe)

I checked the Event Viewer in Administrative Tools and I'm getting this every hour:
DCOM got error "The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. " attempting to start the service MDM with arguments "" in order to run the server:

That seems to be the only error-related event that's gettin logged.

Wait, that's not correct. I'm also getting quite a few errors for "LoadPerf." Here are the two I'm getting consistently:
The performance strings in the Performance registry value is corrupted when process Performance extension counter provider. BaseIndex value from Performance registry is the first DWORD in Data section, LastCounter value is the second DWORD in Data section, and LastHelp value is the third DWORD in Data section.
Unloading the performance counter strings for service WmiApRpl (WmiApRpl) failed. The Error code is the first DWORD in Data section.

Those are both listed as happening at the same second (every hour), with the first message listed, then the second, as separate events.
