so i have formatted my comp about twice now but it still keeps locking up in desktop or in games cant do anything its a complete freeze. i have checked my event log and its always the same few programs giving erros com+ com and dcom in previous formats i have disabled them and all their dependencies still kept freezing. im in a new format atm and it has frozen a couple of times today already so im really stumped on this, i took it to a mates computer store and they checked all the hardware and its fine and my temps dont really seemto be a problem to me.
error 1 :
The COM+ Event System detected a bad return code during its internal processing. HRESULT was 80070422 from line 44 of d:\comxp_sp3\com\com1x\src\events\tier1\eventsystemobj.cpp. Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services to report this error.
