This past month upon starting Windows I've been getting this nagging error message that causes a countdown from 60 seconds then it restarts Windows:

"Windows must now restart because DCOM server process launcher service terminated."

I know how to intervene with the "shutdown -a" command, but I'd like to know what the cause of the problem is and how to get rid of it.

I have a HijackThis log that hopefully proves helpful to someone here. Thanks in advance!
