The subject error occurs very frequently during Windows Explorer and many other applications. Selection of either OK or Cancel does not appear to cause any subsequent deleterious effects. The attached file describes how the problem originated (following the loading of a Konica-Minolta DiMAGE Scan Dual IV application - V1.0.1 - from its CD-ROM). The high frequency of occurrence is most annoying! I have researched the "svchost.exe" posts, but found no resolution. I have run many anti-malware programs (NIS 2008, Zone Alarm Pro, Search and Destroy, Adaware, HiJack This, all with the latest updates), with no detection of malware.
