    I get an error message on my Windows XP Home edition laptop (HP Mini 1000) that says: "dcom server process launcher service terminated unexpectedly" and says the computer needs to restart in one minute and that it's authorized by (NT Authority? or something like that.) It then counts down from one minute and restarts...This happens quite frequently and it's frankly a pain in the ***...Can anyone help me? I am in the process of download Hijack This now, and can put up a log if necessary...

    I have tried doing system roll backs but it still happens...I have had an array of anti-spyware programs downloaded recently including Avast (which I still have not been able to uninstall completely!!) and Scottie Winpatrol and Advanced System Care Free (which is still installed)...I have also been using Revo Uninstaller to uninstall programs and removing any leftover files or registry keys...I hope I have not accidentally removed something important from the registry...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    p.s. - here is my HIJACK THIS log!
