Getting consistent errors in my event viewer right before my system hangs, freezes, and forces a shut down.
Event 80 SideBySide
Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CC\Dreamweaver.exe".Error in manifest or policy file "" on line . 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.

I have an nvidia card... not sure why I'm getting the AMD errors. I've tried everything I can think of...
Help! Much obliged in advance!
Allow me to quote a colleague of mine from this thread http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1304813
"Have you installed some "Windows Updates" lately? If yes, then this issue is most probably happening due to the updates. We have had exactly same issues reported by other customers (with same Windows event logs).
Please follow the steps mentioned below and see if you get a resolution to your issue:
1. Uninstall Dreamweaver CC
2. Do a "System Restore" on your Windows machine back to somewhere in early/mid JULY (if that's available) or earlier.
3. Install Dreamweaver CC and then update to latest version 13.1 build # 6443
4. Optional - If you wish, you can install the available Windows Updates.
Please let us know if you still face this issue."
That's not at all practical I'm afraid
