check in device manager if there are some errors
updating the drivers can help also
if possible, test the error device on another PC

Windows 8.1
no. No dwvics in yellow mark in device manager
Yes. The system fully updated. In fact the issue started after December month patches. Not very sure which patch created the issue. The error occurred while opening some applications. And while installing application using msi file too. When I try to install java 8.25 using msi file got same error. Tried update the java online and java got updated.

it is my assumption that patch could be the culprit, but not sure, no other changes done in the system only the patches are applied
