Hi for some time i have been seeing this error when i run a diagnostic toolset, i did have some sort of kernel virus and i reformatted and started again, but i keep seeing this error,

Error: (10/23/2011 08:01:28 PM) (Source: SideBySide) (User: )
Description: Activation context generation failed for "C:\Windows\WinSxS\manifests\amd64_microsoft.windows.common-controls_6595b64144ccf1df_6.0.7601.17514_none_fa396087175ac9ac.manifest1".Error in manifest or policy file "C:\Windows\WinSxS\manifests\amd64_microsoft.windows.common-controls_6595b64144ccf1df_6.0.7601.17514_none_fa396087175ac9ac.manifest2" on line C:\Windows\WinSxS\manifests\amd64_microsoft.windows.common-controls_6595b64144ccf1df_6.0.7601.17514_none_fa396087175ac9ac.manifest3.
A component version required by the application conflicts with another component version already active.
Conflicting components are:.
Component 1: C:\Windows\WinSxS\manifests\amd64_microsoft.windows.common-controls_6595b64144ccf1df_6.0.7601.17514_none_fa396087175ac9ac.manifest.
Component 2: C:\Windows\WinSxS\manifests\x86_microsoft.windows.common-controls_6595b64144ccf1df_6.0.7601.17514_none_41e6975e2bd6f2b2.manifest.

can someone tell me please what this means? and if there is any way to resolve the problem, i don't think it is affecting the machine much, it's just bothering me more than anything because there are a lot of instances of it appearing.

Thanks.

I'm running win 7 64 bit professional.

If that's in the event log, just ignore it. If your system is running as expected you are best served by staying OUT of the event log.

Thanks allan, i posted not because the computer is running badly, more to try and understand what it means, thanks for the reply.

just been to your site at tweaks.com im going to find that a quite valuable resource, thank you, first thing i found was the rdp setttings, interestingly when im gaming i am seeing attacks on this port, they must have cracked the password somehow because i am also seeing other pc's inside my lans addresses trying to be connected too.
my password is over 20 characters long letters and numbers, do you think this means they have got the password through other means than brute force?.

I'm the wrong person to ask. I am in no way, shape or form a security guru and I'd just be guessing. Go ahead and ask someone in the security forums on this site though - I'm sure there are a number of folks there who can provide a much more intelligent response than I can.
