Windows 7: "Whoops! Problems retrieving XML Data!"

10 Mar 2010   #1

"Whoops! Problems retrieving XML Data!"

Hi there,

I don't know where to put this but I just started my computer and just like yesterday I had this pop up which says: ZOMG! Problems retrieving XML Data!

What does this mean?
I didn't do anything yet, just started the computer... That's all.

That certainly is not from a Windows application...

No it is not Microsoft. Do you have any security programs running? You might try doing an on line malware and virus scan>

Yesterday there were MS patches, maybe one of your legit programs is not running correctly now.

You could try a system restore to before the patches and see if everything works correctly. I would definately do a virus scan first though. <-- as suggested by others here

I scanned my computer with malware and after that with my scanner but nothing's found... I'll come back to this when I get the message again. 'cause I clicked the 'OK' button and nothing happens... If I get the message again I probably will do a system restore. Thanks guys!
