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.

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.

Glad you got the problem fixed.  Sounds like you fixed it yourself.  You should click on the link for Community Support on the left side of the page (if you're using the oldlook user interface for Experts Exchange) or click on the button labeled CS at the top righthand side of the page (for the new look), and post a zero point question to have this question deleted so your points can be returned to you.  Make sure to include the reason for the deletion and the url of this question in your Community Support question.
