Error Code 0x80073b01 - I need to contact the System Administrator

Hello, I'm hoping someone can help me with this.  When I start up my computer a message pops up that states:  An error has occurred in the program during initialization.  If this problem continues, please contace your system administrator.  Then it states the Error Code:  0x80073b01.  Anyone else having this problem?  Thanks for the help!

What is the installed operating system?

 

Are you able to boot into Windows?

 

Do you have Microsoft Security Essentials installed?
