Hi Welcome to Seven Forums .. Run a Scan of the System files .. The Link below will help you achieve this ..

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker


If that does not fix the Error .. Maybe a Restore point would work before you had the issue

Alright, Hey! So thank you for the reply but to my knowledge it did not fix the error i am having, I also do not have a System Restore Point on this computer... So is their any other way i could fix this error? Thanks!

I'll give your a little more information! I ran the SFC scan about 5 times and when it was done it always said "Windows Resources Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them " So yeah..
