    Things you can try.
    1) run sfc /scannow from cmd prompt to check/repair system files.
    2) System restore to date prior to error being reported.
    3) Repair install booting from Windows CD.
    4) Possible Infection ? - Do a disk cleanup, Run Anti virus Scans. Download Malwarebytes FREE Scanner, Click updates (to get current signature file) and run Quick scan.
