I found:

I just resolved my issue by turning off automatic updates, reboot, then manually going to windows updates and installing the updates, turing on automatic updates, reboot.

It seems that code has to do with some sort of Pentium program error detection. I would assume that my machine failed to autoinstall an update and this error was the result...please try and I hope this helps you out.


Here is a Google search if the above does not help.
