Welcome to Geeks to Go. Let's address your DCOM crashes. Assuming you're running Vista, please click your 'Start' menu and click 'Run...' (or type in the search box). Type "dcomcnfg.exe" [no quotations]. If the User Account Control pops up, confirm you know what you're doing by running as Administrator
You should see something like the photo above. In the left pane, select the 'Event Viewer' and expand 'Applications and Services'.
Look at the results in the main pane. If you're seeing a ton of events popping up in a certain application or process, start researching there. You are looking for errors (presumably the ones that are causing your component services to crash).
Please give us some more information so that we can be of more service to you. Can you find a pattern with the crashes? Are there certain programs or services that are always running? Be as specific as possible. Thanks!
