Starting getting this error a few days ago. Tried the stuff in the FAQ. Running 2.4.3. Still not working. Here is my event log. Any ideas?

See the FAQ's on Common Issues and Installation Issues. You have a corrupted filesystem, do a clean install

I uninstalled MCEBuddy and reinstalled yesterday, did not work. How do I do a "clean" install?
