After reinstalling windows 7 I have had the same issue. I have reformatted my drive & reinstalled a 2nd time after following the suggestions on microsoft web site.

With the 2nd reinstall I tried using my computer without reintalling other programs. All was ok. Then I reinstalled programs & tested them over a few days and all seemed ok. But after a few days I am getting the same error message. I uninstall my video drivers the problem goes away. Tried reinstalling drivers & problem returned.

I reintalled from a back up all was ok for a few days. I again installed one program at a time & all seemed ok. But again after a few days I get the same error.

I have attached Autoruns report.

Any help would be much appreciated.


Please do start a new thread... we will help you... once you have done it... delete this post and send me a PM .. i will look into it for you.
