Runtime error 217 in Win7 Pro x64

I have Windows 7 Pro (64-bit) with Kaspersky Internet Security 2014.  I have had no major problems between the two, but at some point this past week I started to get 'Runtime Error 217 at XXXXXXXX'.


The runtime error occurs infrequently.  In some cases, I noticed that the time it takes for Win7 to accept my log-on password and go to the main screen is longer than the usual 2 to 5 seconds, and during the point at which Win7 activates most of the startup programs, the error occurs and left-clicking is disabled (none of my programs will activate after left-clicking, nor will such a window as the Control Panel pop up).  Sometimes Win7 jumps from log-on screen to main screen normally, and still I get the error.  And once in a while, as Win7 is loading, just after the opening splash screen, and before the log-on password screen appears, I get a BSOD.  The Recovery Agent can't find the problem.


Should I install Microsoft Fix-It, or run a clean boot and activate one service at a time to see if the runtime error occurs.  I have never touched the registry (manually or with another program), and I have yet to activate even one program within Advanced System Optimizer with my latest Win7 setup.


For starters, I have a feeling the problem might have arisen either from VirtuMVP or the Bing Desktop (faulty installation, perhaps?); in which case, I may have to uninstall either one or both, clean up the disk from the Explorer, run a disk check and reinstall one or both.


UPDATE:  I'm in the middle of power-cycling my clean boots, activating one program at a time until Runtime Error 217 shows up again...


...But as for my BSODs (which have been more frequent than I thought), I have this information:


Problem signature:




Problem Event Name: BlueScreen


OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.48


Locale ID: 1033


Additional information about the problem:




BCCode: f4


BCP1: 0000000000000003


BCP2: FFFFFA8013B32B30


BCP3: FFFFFA8013B32E10


BCP4: FFFFF800035887B0


OS Version: 6_1_7601


Service Pack: 1_0

Anyone able to make sense of this?

I performed a system restoration back to a point before the BSODs started running wild, but I still got a Runtime Error 217.


I checked my Event Viewer to pinpoint the time at which the runtime error occurred, and if I'm reading it right (because I'm not so sure I am), it may have something to do with .NET Framework 4.0:

Notice the file MVPControlPanel.exe.  I think I may have to uninstall Lucid VirtuMVP, run a Windows disk cleanup, and reinstall.  I hope that is the problem, because I hate to think that I may have to remove everything related to .NET Framework 4.x and reinstall.  I will update you on the aftermath.

 

UPDATE:  I removed Lucid VirtuMVP 2.1.226, ran a disk cleanup via Windows Explorer, a disk check, and reinstalled.  This time, LucidLogix had version 2.1.227.

 

So far, one day after removing 2.1.226 and installing 2.1.227, no runtime errors have popped up.
