Strange, intermittent "Configuration Error" involving a COM DLL

P: n/a
I have a Dot Net project that references a COM DLL called
"Crypto.dll," which is registered on my machine. I added the reference
via the "Add Reference" dialog in Visual Studio Dot Net, and I am
successfully accessing methods in this DLL in some of my classes.

"Interop.CRYPTOLib" is the name of the interop VS.NET created for me
when I added the reference.

Frequently, when I try to run my application, I get the error that
follows.

What's very frustrating and puzzling is that sometimes this error
occurs and sometimes it doesn't; it will occur 10 times in a row, then
I'll walk away from my desk for 15 minutes, and the application will
run fine.

Rebootimg my machine always seems to fix the error, but only for a
short period of time; it always recurs eventually.

Any help that anyone could give me on this would be greatly
appreciated...I'm really stumped! Thanks in advance!!
