I have tried viewing photos on my Windows 10 PC and got the above error message. I tried /scanow but no errors were found. I rebooted my PC and updated my system update. After the updates I still received the same errors.

I scanned using anti-virus in case of virus or malware infection. None detected. Restarted my PC, but still getting the “class not registered” errors.
