    RAVCpl64.exe file is a software component of Realtek High Definition Audio Driver by Realtek. You may need to update Realtek High Definition Audio Driver if Sfc /scannow command won't repair the error message.

    Have you recently had any issues with unwanted guests (malware) on your machine.

    I would run the SFC /scannow FreeBooter mentioned as you mentioned this is happening on more than one program.
