Since yesterday I have two error boxes popping up as soon as I log in to my Windows XP (SP3) account announcing:
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Runtime error! Program: C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
There are no strange services running and no errors in the system or application event log. Any ideas how to trace what causes this error? I have scanned for viruses, and run the sfc (system file checker).
Thanks for any help or suggestions.
I've uninstalled a few applications that I had recently installed (MS Visual C# 2010 Express, Visual Web Developer, SQL Server 2008 and with it a Visual C++ 2010 Runtime as well as MySQL Workbench) and my problem was solved. Is anyone aware of incompatibilities with Windows XP SP3? Is there any way to pinpoint the problem without randomly guessing what is clashing on your system?
