COM Surrogate encountered a problem

On a couple of occasions on start up I have had a Windows message box appear that says, "COM Surrogate encountered a problem and has to close we are sorry .....". The PC continues to work fine after closing the message, but curiosity has got to work and I wondered what it was all about.

I have Googled the message and had plenty of hits - none of which I can understand as the answers are a bit techie for me.

Can anyone give any indication - in simple plain English please - what this message is about?

Thanks in anticipation.
