This started happening exactly on January 11th, 2014. I should have asked for help earlier, I know, but it hasn't gotten this bad until now. When it first happened, it gave the "Windows must now restart because the DCOM Server Process/Plug and Play terminated unexpectedly" or something along the lines of that every 5 minutes or so, and forcibly restarted my computer. After installing MBAM and running a few quick scans, I cleared all the threats that came up, and the Plug and Play error ceased to exist. However, the DCOM error still popped up every 1-4 hrs (it was very random, and rudely interrupted me in the middle of writing an essay or something.) After a few months, a new error popped up saying "Windows will now restart in 1 minute." It basically had the same effect as the DCOM error. Just today, it has started popping up 5-10 min after boot, and has been VERY annoying. I downloaded Kaspersky's TDSSKiller and scanned my computer, and a suspicious file came up saying "Dcomlaunch". After finding the file location, it was rpcss.dll from the Windows/System32 folder. The only thing I can infer from this is the dll must be corrupted or infected. I don't know what to do with this.  Please help me fix my computer ASAP!

Do you plug and play peripheral devices into your computer?

I'm relatively sure the printer drivers are uninstalled, but I can't be too sure. The printer I was using was a really old Dell AIO.
