Although I hate copy/paste answers, I'll give you the same answer that I gave you on ticket #12145. It might help others that come lurking in this thread:

  1. Not everything that has the same error code means that is the same problem, I'll give you a small example; File_Not_Found means that the file is not where it's supposed to be. It could have been deleted, moved, renamed or became unavailable. Four different actions resulting in the same error message. Generally, it's a good idea to expand the "Me too" message with the exact conditions that lead to the error.

  2. Reinstalling Windows seemed like the best idea. And it actually was, since you reported that everything is now working! :)
Do NOT send me Personal Messages (PMs) for troubleshooting, they are simply deleted.
Do NOT reply with the "QUOTE" button, please use the "POST REPLY", at the bottom of the form.
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
