Temporary Solution – Uninstall Divx

As you can see, the problem can easily be rectified, but only if you know what your doing. The conflicting / manifested dll or other file, could be malware or linked to a bigger program.

p.s this error had to be placed here as the Microsoft site has changed to only promote bug reports on, evaluating software only 🙂
