    Hello R2,

    What are those other applications? And which version of Visual Studio you are using?

    Is your OS is updated to SP3 + latest security /windows updates?

    Since when this error started?

    Please note that generally Run Time errors occurs due to non-compatibility.

    Have you looked into your system's event viewer logs? Check the Application logs, there might be some clues there.

    Please also give complete system specs of your PC. Regards

    Edit:
    Can you please login with a different user name/password, and then try to launch program(s) which are giving this error, and see whether this changes anything?

    Use CCleaner and Scan for Issues...

    It is more likely that there are some registry values which are corrupt. Have you tried to login with a different user and see whether it fixes the issue?

    Also it would be good idea to start a thread with regard to that Avast infection warning in the Virus and Malware removal forum by following these steps.

    I've reinstalled ms visual c++, updated to Sp3, cleaned registry with CCleaner, and scant whole PC with Avira Premium.

    SUPERAntiSpyware fixed problem with antivirus blocking.

    So my system is now clean and working.

    Hope this helps other people with this problem.

    Ty all for your help.
