Rick F your link was very helpful, i think i have got it disabled now.

Yes DavidR the status is on started and the start up type is automatic.

Tarq57 I think you mean the component monitor. If yes then yes it is set to learning. and i didn't have the block all outgoing connections while booting on. thanks for that.

Recently i haven't been getting the pop up so hopefully i won't get it again. if i do I'll post back here.

Thanks for all the input.

Disabling the DCOM, shouldn't have any effect on whether or not you get the pop-ups.

The attempts are speculative and don't know or care if your system is up to date and not vulnerable to these DCOM attacks. So the attack doesn't know from the outside of your system DCOM is disabled.

They have stopped as quickly as they appeared, perhaps because none got through (no point in sending more) or Comodo finally came to the fore and is blocking them, so the Network Shield isn't getting in on the action.

My guesses are on this way...
