CS Host Message

A message box entitled as above has appeared on my PC. It quotes an error number, then says "Automation Server cannot create an object message - automation server cannot create object"
Can anyone please advise on the significance of this? Thanks in anticipation.

What operating system?

Waht applications?

When does it appear? At startup, after a while, or when?

Does it come in safe-mode? (Press F8 at boot).

Thanks Diodorus and VoG,
The message has now stopped appearing following a System Restore. I suspect an upgrade to Norton has started the problem as despite spending £40 on the upgrade it has failed to download and work properly. I am now in the vicious circle that others have reported in the past - cannot remove it and cannot repair! Am still working on this, but appreciate your past advice and will also look at the Spyware / Adware links suggested.
Much appreciated.

Thanks for the Norton removal link. Will give it a go when I am feeling fresh tomorrow!
