I just attempted to completely remove any part of Dxtory on my computer, and then I reinstalled it onto a different hard drive. The error still appears.

I just rolled back my drivers and it still is giving me the same exception.

As another possibility, OS may be broken.
Wasn't AdwCleaner used?
It's unconfirmed, but this program deletes important information on a system.

The solution is easy. If it's clean OS, it will always work correctly.

Ah yes, I did use AdwCleaner recently and for the first time. This might be the issue. What files would it have deleted, and how can I fix this?

At this point the sources of the problem seem to be : Windows customization or infection / malware

That CLSID ( 56FDF344-FD6D-11D0-958A-006097C9A090 ) in the log file does indeed point to explorerframe.dll
 and is responsible for Task Bar Communication such as the methods seen here  : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd391692%28VS.85%29.aspx

Dxtory uses this dll and is probably the source of the problem.  So, knowing that, I would try to replace the file if its corrupted / modified by trying this or restoring backups

If it's the registry that is corrupted you can try a system restore, or restore registry backups, or carefully search through adwcleaner backups.

Well, if that is really the issue, that brings up another. Explorerframe.dll is inside system32, and attempting to modify anything inside that folder is impossible, even when being an Administrator on my own computer. I've tried the 'sfc /scannow' command inside cmd, but that showed no errors to any of my files. When looking at my current explorerframe.dll, it shows that it hasn't been modified since 2013.

I think the only solution to this is to completely reinstall Windows...

One other thing you can try once you are sure your explorerframe.dll is valid is to first backup the registry / create sys restore point and then run this command in a CMD window as Administrator
Quote
regsvr32 ExplorerFrame.dll


@Fletch
What version of windows are you using or did you want to post the whole Environment info file ?

I'm running Windows 8.1. I dont think I can post that file, because Dxtory won't open.

I received this error when I tried 'regsvr32 ExplorerFrame.dll':

That is actually the normal response for that command with ExplorerFrame.dll

I guess I'll wait and see if someone else has any ideas to try.

@Fletch or someone else who is having the issue

To verify your registry entries are original please do this :
1.  Download regscanner from nirsoft here, make sure to get 64 bit if that is your OS type ( the zipped one is fine , dont need the installer )
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/regscanner.html

2.  Run the program and search for ExplorerFrame.dll like so

3.  When it's done searching , right click > HTML Report - All Items
Save the html file it generates and attach it here or paste it to a site like paste2.org

4.  Include your full OS details  ( for example : Windows 8.1 64-bit )

@Fletch
I've compared your report to a brand new install of win 8.1 that I happened to have and there are some differences.  I'm posting a registry fix that might help, but you should really create a system restore point before merging this just in case.

This reg file is for Windows 7/8/8.1 - 64bit versions only ( in this case its from a EN-US install )

You may have to reboot after merging for it to take effect

I did something risky and didn't create a restore point at all and applied the registry fix. It worked, and Dxtory now opens with no errors. Thanks so much man!
