I have installed xp in my computer and it is updated automatically.
Sometimes when I open the system I get the following error message.
Windows must restart now because the DCOM Server Process Launcher Service terminated unexpectedly.
the system then restarts automatically.
It is not happening always, only sometimes.

What could be the reason?

I have been reading through some google search results and as soon as you get to the desktop quickly double click on the clock and roll back a few hrs ,this will give you a chance to run you antivirus program ,and may i suggest this scan also .
Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (http://www.majorgeeks.com/Malwarebytes_Anti-Malware_d5756.html) to your desktop.

* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
* At the end, be sure to checkmark the Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When completed, a log will open in Notepad.
