As far as I know there is no requirement for DCOM to access the net you might want to go here to download the decombobulator 
http://www.grc.com/dcom/intro.htm

It also has further data on DCOM

Quote
What does DCOM do for you?

Well let's see . . . it attracts Internet worms and permits your system to be remotely compromised by malicious hackers. Other than that, it's of absolutely no practical use other than to adorn Microsoft's "We Have That Too" chart. There may be some custom corporate application developers who have managed to make some use of it, but mostly no one ever has. Nonetheless, it's there in Windows so that the competitors' CORBA isn't.

The DCOMbobulator will help everyone test
their DCOM patches and finally turn DCOM off.

DCOM is disabled on my system with no adverse affects.  Dcombobulator is for all versions of windows.  Your DCOM appears to be running as a subprocess of rpcss.exe which is not a file held on XP however, I do have a rpcss.dll on my system.

Info about RPCSS.exe here  http://www.cexx.org/rpc.htm

OK must be a 98SE thing hopefully someone else who runs 98se can provide you with an answer.  Although I used to run 98 without dcom and avast with no probs but that was a few years back.

Unfortunately now I am lost because in XP they start as services.  The open listening ports are part of DCOM/RPCSS.  Can you start ASHSERV  from the programme folder and did you reset Avast at start up.
