    I'm sorry, I had copied and pasted the above title in my question because that was what I was trying to view--my problem is basically the same but diff. os (I'm assuming the NT stands for Win NT Os--if not, forgive me, I'm not great on computer jargon--here's copy and paste from my event log:

    The COM+ Event System detected a bad return code during its internal processing. HRESULT was 80080005 from line 39 of D:\n3\private\es\tier1\eventsystemobj.cpp. Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services to report this error.  

     My OS:  Win98

    I was curious what the error meant because it made reference to the "d" drive which has recently died on me (or rather my CD/DVD ROM died) and I wondered if this was a clue.  I bought a new CD ROM today, so that problem will be fixed, but I'd still like to know if this is something that can (or should) be corrected.  Thx

    Your problem should resolve itself once you replace the CD ROM drive.  If it doesn't, here is a Microsoft article on how to resolve it:;EN-US;870655

    Thanks to TEK-01 and MHurtares for answering back; TEK-01: I feel I owe you a little something since you were given incorrect info, so I'm splitting the points; MHurtares, you'll get the most since you gave me some info to go by, but I can't say that it really solved the problem.  I have installed my new CD ROM and so far so good, but I was wanting to understand the message in the event log.  Anyway, thanks to both of you.
