Hi there,

I had the same problem several weeks ago. I found a fix for it on the MS Knowledge Base and it worked for me. In my case I just used a registry fix they had on there, but it seems they have a hotfix for it now. They can explain it alot better than me and match up the error messages and stuff to yours rather than me reinventing the wheel typing it all up again. Here is the link:

Good luck with it,

Well the hotfix is to prevent the problem so it probably doesn't actually fix it though its probably worth a try. Its available through Windows Update or the Windows Update Catalog. I used the workaround detailed at the bottom of the page i previously linked as installing SP1 didn't fix my problem.
