I can't help with the GIS program, as GIS is too generic a term - for any hope of some help, more details would be required (developer, etc)
I would like to note that I am having the same error dialog ("File name or class name not found during Automation operation") with a different program, which just so happens to be a GIS program. If you search for this error message over the web, it seems to happen with all sorts of programs as well as customized VB scripts, so it does not seem to be specific to any one application.

Recent Items in Start menu is broken
This has been doing this since two weeks ago and I can't get it to stop. It even still happens after a format. I can't remove it, because clicking 'Remove from List' does nothing. It's always the same icon.
