Hi there, I was wondering if someone could help me solve a long running problem!

An error message always pops up on my computer saying:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library.

Runtime Error!
Program: C:\...
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the applications support team for more information.


The problem here is that the "application" name is not given! I feel like I have tried everything, I ran a registry cleaner, virus scan, ran Malware Bytes Anti Malware, even uninstalled Microsoft Visual C++, nothing works.

The error message only pops up when the computer hasn't been touched for a while, e.g. if i'm surfing the net or typing then I get no error messages. But if i'm watching a video, and therefore not pressing any keys, the error keeps popping up.

Has anyone got any ideas on how to stop this? The computers about to be thrown out the window at this stage! :D

Thanks!

p.s its windows xp service pack 3!

Do you have one?
If the issue only occurs when you leave the machine alone for a bit, which is also how screensavers work, it may be the screensaver causing the problem.
