The very last comment in the thread referenced a program called WindowBlinds. If you're not using WindowBlinds, you might still be using a similar program that is interfering with graphics display by the OS.  The previous proposed solutions might also be applicable in your case.

I have found the solution to my problem. It turns out that i had a virus that was causing that error. The virus was in the Windows>system32>xplugin.dll. After i deleted that DLL file everything worked fine. Thanks for helping.
