Virtual Key Shared Cache problem

Every time I start Internet Explorer 8, I get the error "an error has occurred while initializing the virtual key shared cache.  If you want Vitrual Key to work correctly, please close this application  and restart it."   When I close and restart, the error reappears.

What must I do to correct this error?

It's seem that it's Google Desktop doing this problem.

If you have Google Desktop installed, remove it and the error should disappear.

If you don't have Google Desktop installed, try to reset and disable third-party browser extensions :

1. Click Start, please type “inetcpl.cpl” (without quotation marks) in the Start Search bar and press Enter to open the Internet options window.

2. Switch to the Advanced tab.

3. Click the Reset Internet Explorer Settings button.

4. Click Reset to confirm the operation.

5. Click Close when the resetting process finished.

6. Uncheck Enable third-party browser extensions option in the Settings box.

7. Click Apply, click OK.

Seeing as both answers came at the same time you should split the points.
