COM Surrogate Errors

    Am running Win XP SP2 with Classic ASP+VB6 dll's alongside ASP.NET+C# dll's.

    I keep getting the following error … ‘COM Surrogate encountered a problem
    and needs to shut down’. This requires me to do an IISReset and re-start
    whatever I was doing, which is extremely frustrating. Google reveals that
    this is a pretty common type of error but does not point me to any kind of
    solution to it. MS's knowledge base appears pretty silent on this issue.

    I have just rebuilt my PC from scratch and installed mostly MS products
    (save the Oracle 9.2.04 ODP) so I cannot understand what could be the cause
    of this problem. So if anybody has any advice (aside from installing W2K or
    W2003) that may be of help I greatly appreciate it?

    Further info
    =======
    I have saved the contents of both the following ...
    C:\DOCUME~1\b9995730\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER05bb.dir00\dllhost.exe.mdmp
    C:\DOCUME~1\b9995730\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER05bb.dir00\appcompat.txt
    .... (which are generated when the error occurs) and can send on.

    A restricted width extract from appcompat.txt is as follows ...

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>
    <DATABASE>
    <EXE NAME="SYSTEM INFO" FILTER="GRABMI_FILTER_SYSTEM"
