I get this exact error, although when right-clicking on various things (desktop, Recycle Bin, etc.). – Matt Hanson Jan 2 '10 at 21:59

It works on my machine - Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

You could try running diagnostic tests on the RAM using the Memory tester that comes with Windows - it might be a memory problem. You can get to this by booting from the Windows DVD and the Repair option.

Hi Anthony, and welcome to SuperUser. SuperUser is unlike most other website, as it is not intended for discussion. Your response would have been better suited for a comment on the original question as what you wrote does not actually solve C-Pound Guru's problem. – Josh Hunt Nov 5 '09 at 1:55
Thanks josh - I have added some more information to my answer – Anthony Nov 5 '09 at 21:16
