I'm having the same sort of problem. Some programs run, but programs like TaskManager don't show up at all and give me that error. A lot of other programs do this, but some run okay and only some occasionally crash like this. I cannot access TaskManager which is a big pain. Another example of it happening is when I download a file using Download Accelerator it will give me this error if I click 'open file' or 'open folder' when the download is finished.
In fact I can't even save a hijack this log, it lets me scan but not save the log (so I can't get a log to copy and paste here).
I noticed an entry for:
O20 - Winlogon Notify: mscrypt - D:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\mscrypt.dll
Any idea what that is? A google search for mscrypt.dll brings up nothing. I find this very strange?
I'm not hijacking this thread, I'm just trying to shed light on it since I'm pretty sure we're both having the same problem.
