Microsoft Visual C++ Debug Library error message

November 2016


When I right click on the desktop the following error is displayed:
Microsoft Visual C++ Debug Library 
Debug Assertion Failed! 
Program: C:\Windows\system32\igfxsrvc.exe 
File: D:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 
9.0\VC\ATLMFC\INCLUDE\atlcom.h 
Line: 2475 
Expression: 0 && "Release called on a pointer that has already been 
released" 
For information on how your program can cause an assertion 
failure, see the Visual C++ documentation on asserts. 
(Press Retry to debug the application) 

Knowing that the D:\ drive is the recovery partition

Solution


Simply remove the following file:
  • C:\Windows\system32\igfxsrvc.exe 

Restart your PC and it should be OK.
