I doubt if that would work effectively.

And that is decidedly dangerous unless you are sure that all 
errors are safe to ignore. Which is rarely true.

To the OP:
Have you tried lookingup the error number on MSDN, 
or the error message on Google groups?

Both are powerful resources for deciphering OLE/COM errors.
