Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Error, Explorer.exe

I’m running Vista Business and getting the following error only upon initial boot in the morning. If i restart it seems to be fine.

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Runtime Error!
Program: C:\Windows\Explorer.EXE
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

There are few possibly causes that I’ve come across for this.

  • People have said that the Google Toolbar causes this issue.. (I’ve uninstalled this to see how it goes.. Update: It didn’t work for me. Might for you though!)
  • Others have said that the Free Download Manager can cause it.
  • One person said that they ran OneCare to clean the registry. See the reply at the bottom. Only a few lines long. (Therefore another option would be to try a registry cleaner)

As far as I know I’ve not got the Free Downoad Manager installed. I do have the google toolbar though.

Will try and keep this updated as I figure it out or find more possibly solutions.
