Windows constantly shutting down

So I have this problem where after I start up XP, about every ten minutes or so, Windows will shut down and restart. It gives me this error message that says the system is being shut down by NT Authority\System because the DCOM server process launcher service has terminated early. I have tried a system restore going back two months which usualy fixes any quirks I have but no help this time. I also tried creating a new user but I get the same thing. It seems to operate pretty much normaly when it starts up or restarts. I can do any application but suddenly after ten or fifteen minutes it will suddenly interupt whatever I am doing and give me this error message saying it is being shut down and gives me a sixty second timer, then it restarts. Even if I'm not running anything it still does it. So what is going on here? Is there some file I need to delete or do I need to reinstall XP....again?

I suggest that you start a new topic in the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal area.

Before you start a new topic click on this link --> Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide, Please read before starting a new topic. This will give you a few preparations to make, as well as instruction for posting your OTListIt2 log.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
