DCOM Server

Specs: Windows XP
Hi Everyone.

A friend has a pc with probable viruses, I've been trying to resolve the problem

but with only partial success ... when I start the system in 'safe mode',
once the o/s is loaded, the system indicates a system message that : system is

shutting down in 30-60 seconds
'DCOM Server process launcher service terminated unexpectedly'

Any suggestions as to actions to remedy this problem is much appreciated.

What tools have you used so far?
I suggest scanning in safemode with a good anti-virus application such as kaspersky?

Thanks for your input - this problem is now resolved :)

Firstly I'd read on the net that a temporary workaround to
stop the repetitive shutdown was to issue the 'shutdown -a'
command which stopped the repeated reboots.

From there it was just a case of using general antivirus/anti-malware software to tidy things up.

Thanks for your input anyway ... appreciated.

Keep well .
