Anyone had an error popup on shutdown (Windows 7 or possibly Windows 8 as well) stating something along the lines that CSC.EXE has failed to load, or unload...

I'm pretty sure it's not a virus, but it gets annoying because sometimes it shows up when I shutdown my laptop, and other times, it doesn't. Someone once told me it has to do with either a damaged runtime library or possibly Windows Update. Others (online) have hinted that it may be related to "BitMeter" of which I know nothing about.

I've done various virus checks with various scanners, all came up with NOTHING. No malware (ran malware bytes), and have even done a full restore from a clean disc image, but the problem keeps coming back, so I'm thinking it's a software issue--just don't know what it could be.
I have a lot of productivity software on my laptop (Adobe CS6, Office, Solidworks, 3D Studio Max, etc), but no games, so I don't know if its related to one of them or Windows Update or what?

Any ideas on this? I don't have a screen shot right now, but if I can get one, I'll post it here.

Run SFC /scannow
Have your boot disk standing by.

Does any of this apply to you?

Since the OP indicates he didn't install, nor see Bitmeter I'm guessing not so much.

I read that but a few posts in the link say they never had it installed either yet it seems they had a trace of the program. I would follow the KB in the link for the clean boot and see if that helps.

Did a little reading on this issue you have and found out it is a .Net issue.

The information I read says to completely uninstall .Net and reinstall it via Windows update or the standalone download. This should fix the problem.

Hate to revive an old thread (only 4 weeks old though), but I think I'll try that. Because it's fine until I start doing updates. I generally restore from an image file (I have to restore my PC about once every six months from installing and uninstalling stuff, software testing, programming, etc). It's just better that way ayways.

But, I've noticed that after I reimage the drive and start doing updates, the CSC error comes back. I ran the SFC utilty and it reports the files are fine, so I think that is the problem: .NET, because it seems to only appear after I install a ton of .NET updates shortly after the re-image. But unfortunately I need the .Net updates for Visual Studio.

I'll try the suggested method.
