This happened to myself about 4 weeks ago. It happened after I tried to uninstall Norton AV2002. When I eventually managed this and installed McAfee AV ( and ran same ) the McAfee AV detected ( and repaired ) a corrupt system file ( sorry cannot remember file ). In my case at least the problem was almost certainly caused by the ( very problematic ) uninstall of NAV. What AV do you have ? Have you scanned recently ?
