computer freezing

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
I was wondering if it could be a service pack or hotfix....i will check out your link

Unforunately the fix they suggest is for XP Pro...I have XP Home

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


There is no answer!

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