Event 10016 DistributedCOM error

I keep getting this error whilst I'm playing games and streaming them via twitch. It has also happened once when i left the computer and came back.  PC is Win 10 pro and a new build which I built myself

"The application specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM server application with CLSID

{2593F8B9-4EAF-457C-B68A-50F6B8EA6B54) and appid 15C20B67-12E7-4BB6-92BB-7AFF07997402 from address LocalHost (Using LRPC) running in the application container Unavailable SID (Unavailable). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool

Any ideas on what the cause could be?
