    I get an error messge every so often that states " COM Surrogate has stopped working ". It seems to be happening since I installed Dawn of War on my PC. It also doesn't seem to do anything. What is the COM surrogate? Should I be worried about this error message? If so, how do I fix it??

    I get that error every time I unplug my Zune.

    Do you have some sort of USB periphrial device that you plug and unplug regularly?

    I actually have 3 devices- My wife's 80 gig ipod, my ipod shuffle, and my Dell DJ. But sometimes I get the message when I am doing nothing to do with these devices.
