    Hope someone can help me fix this annoying problem.
    At random times my computer freezes, requiring me to press the reboot problem.
    Looking in the event viewer, I have the following error:

    The COM+ Event System detected a bad return code during its internal processing. HRESULT was C0000005 from line 44 of d:\qxp_slp\com\com 1x\src\events\tier1\eventsystemobj.cpp.

    The event code (if helpful) is 4609

    Well, I turned off 'start with windows' on MSN Messenger, and the computer hasn't frozen in over 4 hrs.
    Don't know why this would cause it to freeze

    because you probably has an msn virus or spyware attached to the program that activates when it starts.

    I think they could be right, run HiJackThis and see if you got any bugs...

    See how long it stays stable
