I cannot get rid of Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library - Runtime Error! Program: C:\.. This happens all the time, even when there is no program running other that the desktop, and it repeats every 5 minutes or so. If you have any advice I should be very grateful. I have tried reinstalling the display drivers, removing unwanted programs and desktop icons, cleaning registry, setting up new user profile but cannot solve the problem. It seemed to start a week or so ago while watching BBC iplayer in full screen on Google Chrome - but now happens all the time.
Would it be worth upgrading to Windows 7 to rid me of this pest?
