Movie Maker (Vista Premium)- Invalid Pointer

Movie Maker Vista Home Premium Ver 6.0.6000.16386

I've used the movie maker before, but now I can not drag and drop any image (be it jpg or bmp) or any video. Tried the same by using the clips used in previous movies made. It doesn't show in the timeline/ storyboard

On copy-pasting it gives an "invalid pointer" message. Tried searching in many forums, but no working solution.
-Tried to do a SRC SCANNOW as an administrator on cmd.exe, didn't work either.
-Tried to remove filters n then tried, didn't work

Please help...

Rajat_nda, I recommend you perform a system restore. Below are the steps necessary to do this:

The System Restore tool
If the issue that you are experiencing started occurring recently, you can use the System Restore tool. By using this tool, you can restore the computer to an earlier point in time. Using the System Restore tool may not necessarily help you determine the issue. When you use System Restore to restore the computer to a previous state, programs and updates that you installed are removed.

To restore the operating system to an earlier point in time, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start , type system restore in the Start Search box, and then click System Restore in the Programs list. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue .
  2. In the System Restore dialog box, click Choose a different restore point , and then click Next .
  3. In the list of restore points, click a restore point that was created before you began to experience the issue, and then click Next .
  4. Click Finish .

The computer restarts, and the system files and settings are returned to the state that they were in at the time that the restore point was created.
