Recently my computer has been freezing up frequently. I have made sure it's not a heat issue or a driver issue. I used MTB to determine what the source of the problem was. I found out that the error,

Description: Activation context generation failed for "WLMFDS,processorArchitecture="AMD64",type="win32",version=""1".Error in manifest or policy file "WLMFDS,processorArchitecture="AMD64",type="win32",version=""2" on line WLMFDS,processorArchitecture="AMD64",type="win32",version=""3.
Component identity found in manifest does not match the identity of the component requested.
Reference is WLMFDS,processorArchitecture="AMD64",type="win32",version="".
Definition is WLMFDS,processorArchitecture="x86",type="win32",version="".
Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.

,pops up most frequently. Furthermore it pops up at the exact time my computer freezes.
How do I go about fixing this problem?
