Windows 7: "Whoops! Problems retrieving XML Data!"

10 Mar 2010   #1

"Whoops! Problems retrieving XML Data!"

Hi there,

I don't know where to put this but I just started my computer and just like yesterday I had this pop up which says: ZOMG! Problems retrieving XML Data!

What does this mean?
I didn't do anything yet, just started the computer... That's all.

No it is not Microsoft. Do you have any security programs running? You might try doing an on line malware and virus scan>

Yesterday there were MS patches, maybe one of your legit programs is not running correctly now.

You could try a system restore to before the patches and see if everything works correctly. I would definately do a virus scan first though. <-- as suggested by others here

I scanned my computer with malware and after that with my scanner but nothing's found... I'll come back to this when I get the message again. :) 'cause I clicked the 'OK' button and nothing happens... If I get the message again I probably will do a system restore. :) Thanks guys!
