    Hi there - this morning upon starting up my PC I got an error message informing me that DCOM Server Process Launcher had crashed and that my PC would shut down and gave a minute countdown and then restarted.

    It hasn't happened again - yet, but having read previous threads where people have had similar problems I thought I would post to see if there were any things I could do to see what the potential problem could be.

    I have done a scan with AdAware which shows no problems, also AVG has detected no problems.

    Here is my HJT log:
