an unhandled exception systemsecurity.cryptography.cryptographicexception occurred in OWSTIMER.exe

Having this one every day on your local box where SharePoint 2010 installed?

This is a known issue that gives you no harm: OWSTimer unhandled exception popup – System.Security.Cryptographic.CryptographicException

Don't worry about your Prod SharePoint 2010 box. The window will not popup in the case you don't have Visual Studio installed there.
