My wild guess is REGISTRY BOOSTER and its related bloatware that you have installed in today which gives you the error.

I did not install Registry Booster today.   It has been on the system for many months.

It seems to be related to Nuance PaperPort, rather than a hardware problem.   I used System Restore to revert to an earlier time and the problem went away.
