Ok, I have discovered that for this error all you have to do is repair the latest version of your .net install that you have.

This has only been happening on some of windows 7 x64bit machines at my job and they usually have .net 4 on them. So i just pulled an new install file from google and repaired the .net program restarted and presto!

The error never appeared again
