first of all, sorry for similar topic, but I simply could not find a reply button in that topic, so I created a new one, if that’s a problem, please join the topics, thanx.
And now, some facts about my problem. Every now and then, it’s hard to say exactly when, but usually after the comupter is turned on and Win XP SP3 is booted, Comodo says that services.exe tried to execute shellcode as a result of a buffer overflow attack. The problem is that when I hit the terminate button, that leaves me with 60 seconds countdown and my computer is going to restart itself. I’m kind of worried, if this is not some malware or sth, and because services.exe is an important part of the windows system. I’m also running Avast antivirus and tried to use Spyware Terminator, performed a full system scan, I also scanned the system with Avast antivirus, but nothing was found. Another thing I used was Procexp to examine processes running on my system, but again, I did not find anything suspicious, the log file from Procexp follows:

Could you please give me some advice what to do? Is that probably some threat or should I ignore that? Or should I try the new beta?
Thanx for every advice and pardon my bad english.
EDIT: I found a log of Defense+ events, so now I know, when did the incidents happen:
First it showed on 22nd of Feb, then 9th of March, and then it started to appear more often – 4th, 7th and 14th of April (7th and 14th of April is the last two times when I booted the computer). And I also forgot to mention, that after the restart, the alert does not appear any more, the problem appears only after the first boot.
