Refreshed profile and the error was fixed. Going through installation of addons to try and pinpoint which one could have been the problem.

As for comment 2 it seems that the problem now if fixed.
I'll close this but, please, feel free to add comments if you find the specific origin of the problem (which addon has caused this) it could be useful for other that have experienced the same.
