Hey guys, I was redirected here after being helped by Broni :) Here's my previous topic.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/519518/windows-must-now-restart-because-the-dcom-server-process-terminated-unexpectedly/

 

I'm here now because somehow the same problem has shown up again twice. Skype ends up crashing with some kind of ActiveX error then I eventually get the old error I was producing which was either: "Windows must now restart because the DCOM server process terminated unexpectedly." or "Windows must now restart because the Plug and Play service terminated unexpectedly."

 

I quickly ran rKill to see if the problem I had before returned. Sure enough:

Searching for Missing Digital Signatures:

I then ran his script via BlitzBlank to fix the problem once again (temporarily) and here I am.

Whatever is causing this just ends up trying to shut my computer down and that is it. I had this problem and originally just fully reformatted the drive since I didn't really mind. Turns out on the fresh install it still came back. I almost believe it could be something on another drive of mine. The weird thing is I have have all of my drives connected for over a year now with almost no changes and this problem arises. Remember, the logs I am posting right now are when I can actually use my computer with the temporary fix hah! If this comes up again ill rerun DDS to see if something changed also.

 

-Thanks, Conor

Same description as above. The problem hasn't reoccurred yet since the post but I would still like to make sure I'm clean. I do have the original windows install disk available.
