I would suggest opening the command prompt as administrator by right-clicking on Command Prompt and then clicking Run as Administrator (Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> Command Prompt) and in there typing (without quotes) "sfc /scannow" and let Windows check if there are any corrupt files and fix them. After this has completed, restart your computer and see if the error persists.
