vb.net ntdll.dll

Writing a program in vb.net 2005.  All of a sudden it crashes when trying to use an open file dialog box (which has been working for some time) with a Faulting module ntdll.dll 6.1.7600.16559 error.
Error code 00000374

This is on a Win 7 computer.

Any thoughts?

The problem must be because of internal references.

Try setting property
AutoUpgradeEnabled = true

for the control and it should work. This is a known problem on Windows Vista and above OS.

Already set to true.

Have you installed any software recently that changes the looks and appearance? If yes, it should be the trouble. If no, need to check this out more.

Try this:
1. Launch Visual Studio with elevated Administrator privilege (Right click the shortcut >> Click "Run as Administrator").
or
2. Try running devenv /Resetsettings in Command Prompt to eliminate the cause of corrupted settings

Probalby just another Microsoft reformat, reinstall and it'll work for awhile and do again.

Thanks anyway.

More info.
The OpenFileDialog (OFD) control actually crashes when I click the center scrollbar in an attempt to scroll up to see “Desktop”.  It pauses then crashes… never an opportunity to click “Desktop”.

To test, on the main (startup) form I put an OFD control and a button to bring it up.  It works fine.  IF I bring up the control on the main form and THEN proceed to use the control on my other form (2 generations away) the control will work.

If I skip the "messing around" with the control on the main form and just pull the form that pulls up the form that needs to use the control then VB crashes.

Clear as mud?
