Make you have an application that has some components missing. Insert the install CD (e.g. Office) and run setup and do a custom install and add the missing components.

You may have the GAObot and IRCbot virus. Start your machine in safe mode. Search for the files ****.exe, svchosting.exe, and winupdate.exe. If you find any of these files, then you have the virus. It executes at startup from registry entries. You can read about it at Symantec, http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.ircbot.h.html
