Let's see if this is malware based:
Please download Rkill (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com) to your desktop.
There are 2 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
You only need to get one of these to run, not all of them. You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.
iExplore.exe (renamed rKill.exe): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/11/
There should be a text file named rkill.txt on the desktop, copy and paste that into your next reply.

I too have run into this issue on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit 8 GB RAM. I have also ran MBAM, MBAR, CCCleaner, MSEssentials, ESET Scan, RogueKiller, JRT, Farbar Service Scanner, Farbar Recovery Scan Tool, RKill and all coming back clean and am still running into the issue as well. I receive an annoying "Windows must now restart because the DCOM Server Process Launcher service terminated unexpectedly" or a "Windows will restart in 1 minute" or "Wndows myst now restart because the Power Service Terminated unexpectedly." After becoming so annoyed with the forced restarts, I started cancelling the restarts with shutdown -a but noticed various applications would not open, file access was prevented, and hardware (mic, headset, gaming mouse) failed to work if I did not already have them in use. I'm about to do a full reinstall but am concerned as I just built this pc and installed Win 7 less than a month ago. I have seen a few threads on similar issues with DCOM processes running at high CPU usage and the aformentioned scans and cleaners resolved the others issues. There is a thread on overclock.net that covers some of the processes you can disable that aren't required for your DCOM services to continue running correctly. Search for Wiindows 7 DCOM Services being terminated, forcing restarts and read the second post. SAdly it did not work for me.

I found a solution to this problem. It may or may not help you inasmuch as I am running XP. A system file called RPCSS had been patched with a virus of some sort. I renamed the file and copied a legit version from Windows on another PC. Reboot. Problem solved.
I don't know why MBAM, etc., didn't find it.
