Annoying C++ Runtime Error Message

  1. I am running Windows XP and I keep getting this annoying message over and over:
    Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
    Runtime Error!
    Program:C:\WINDOWS\System32\cidaemon.exe

    R6025
    -pure virtual function call

    It has popped up on my screen twice while posting this thread. What is it and how does one get rid of it?

    Thanks,

    cidaemon.exe - cidaemon - Process Information

    Process File: cidaemon.exe or cidaemon
    Process Name: Microsoft Indexing Service

    Description:
    cidaemon.exe is an indexing service which catalogues files on your computer to enable for faster file searches. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.

    If you don't see any side effects from the error you can try turning off error reporting by doing the following.

    Right-Click on the My Computer icon, then choose Properties, then choose Advanced. Lastly click Error Reporting then choose Disable.

    I tried turning off Error Reporting....but the error message is still popping up....grrrrr. Any other ideas I might try. Oh I am using Firefox I forgot to mention that in my original post...if that means anything to anyone. Why would this error message just start popping up? It never did this before just all of a sudden started doing it.

    Thanks,
