gdiplus.dll causing most things to crash (Explorer, Defender, Photoshop, etc)

No idea why this started happening (Not really anything has been installed or changed in the last couple of days) but quite a few things are crashing, for example, explorer.exe crashes when opening images (Using the 'Preview' thing) or opening the Games window, Defender simply won't start, start++ won't start, Nvidia control panel crashes, etc.

Here is an example of Defender crashing:

Each one of the error boxes from the various crashes mentions gdiplus.dll so I tried replacing the file with a 'fresh' copy, using regsvr to re-register it and just some other things but I haven't gotten anywhere.

I really need to fix this. :/

I don't know what details would be useful, just a rather standard Vista [32Bit/Home Premium] setup.
