Windows 8: "Your pc ran into a problem and needs to restart" - Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0

New to Windows 8 and VC++, had no problem with it until today.
Everytime when the *.dll is about to finish the build, "Your pc ran into a problem and needs to restart" occur.
When it reach 100%, nothing happens.

Have no idea why it started to happening now when it has worked flawless till today.

Have run both memory test and chkdsk.

Jonathan, I would suggest you to do a clean install of Windows 8 pro because upgrading has a lot of issues.

for a clean install make sure you've a copy of the latest drivers for your pc.
now format your pc and install a fresh copy of windows 8 . It'll save you a lot of time as it'll install just perfectly fine.
