Cascading error messages pop up! what do I do?

When Anki is open on the desktop for a few minutes, several windows contain the same error messages pop up, something like errors shown in windows XP: cascading error messages. It is so annoying and prevents me from using Anki, so I have to close the Anki and open it again, and guess what?! After being open for a few minutes, Anki shows the same errors again and again and again. I paste the error message hereunder.
