Solution to “An internal error has occurred: There is something wrong in CryptUnprotectData.” in Lightroom 3

You just need to delete a few things from your Lightroom preferences file: (The following from this thread, I’m reposting so it’s easier to find)

1) Close Lightroom

2) Open up your preferences file in notepad:

C:\users\USER_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\Preferences (in Windows 7)

or C:\Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\Application Data\Adobe\Lightroom\Preferences\ (in Windows XP)

3) Delete the following keys. Find them by searching for “export.facebook”
