been using Win 7 for two years and never encountered any issues. I have AVG free version and Windows defender.

Recently I started getting something about a Surrogate Error, Surrogate Test Error, I can't remember exactly.

I'll re-post the exact thing when it happens again.

Is someone trying to use my PC as a server or something :S

Slightly concerned.

Is it a COM Surrogate Error, by chance? If so, take a look here and see if they relate to what you're performing when it happens.
