Windows 7: Strange error: System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException

20 Oct 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Strange error: System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException

Howdy all. I just got this strange error, and I copied all the info it gave in the error box. The error was labeled a System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException, and Windows said it has something to do with the Microsoft Management Console, and the last thing I did on my system was set my default audio and subtitle language in Haali Media Splitter to English. I didn't get a BSOD, but explorer did crash (which doesn't mean much to me since I use Winstep Nexus Ultimate as my desktop manager). I did manage to get all this info from the MMC error window that popped up.

Again, no idea what it mean. I just restarted and everything was all smooth sailing again. Just for background: my system temps are fine (believe me, I checked), there are no error, warnings, or exceptions listed in the Events Viewer or Windows Reliability Monitor, I just did my yearly clean install of Windows 7 last month, and the last time Windows update ran was 10/10/12 (I have it set to go every 10 days). My page file is disabled if that could be the cause, but it has been since I reinstalled Windows last month. I also disable hibernate and System Restore since I despise both those elements. This is the first time this error has occured to my system...ever. Let me know what all y'all think.

Just been a Googling, and this is a very common error, often associated with .NET 3.5 . Not one thread I viewed had a fix except a repair install. Here is a representative thread:

Task Scheduler/Event Viewer: "MMC has detected an error in - Microsoft Community

If you get no answers, and the error repeats, a Repair Install may be the fix.

I'll make a repair install disc and keep it on hand in case I get the error again.

Nothing in...
