Hello Arinusa,

If you like, you might also see if doing a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before this happened may be able to fix this for you.

Hope this helps for now,
Shawn

Brink's advise sound the most practicle. If still does not work I would give it a try in uninstalling whatever you installed before this started to happen. To me by the sound of the error and the action triggering this it seem that your graphic driver has somehow been affected as could also be a reg key related to the graphic properties being corrupted.
Did you end up in any dodgy website experience before running into this problem? Run a good updated Malware/Spyware scan to find out whether you may have got any Viruses.

Registry cleaners are generally not recommended as they often cause all sorts of problems. Windows 7 does not need the registry cleaned.
Registry cleaners are often advertised on websites as "cure all's" & "speed up enhancers", but the claims are usually completely unfounded.
