Hi Leander.
The media_plugin_cef plugin is required for displaying Search, Profiles, Marketplace and other web pages within the Second Life viewer. It's possible a web page on a prim triggered this failure.
If this error appears again, please file a bug in jira.secondlife.com and attach the SecondLife.log file.  This page tells you where to find the logs folder: http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/How-to-report-a-bug/ta-p/733545#Section_.3

It is also possible that your antivirus decided to disallow that plugin, so check those logs and see if maybe the file got quarantined - it has happened before.

It may rather have to do with a viewer update. I had the same happen on an older (Vista) laptop just today. That's how I found the thread.

Reinstall didn't solve it.

The part of the Second Life viewer that renders media in-world is only compatible with Windows 7 or later.  The Second Life viewer uses CEF/Chromium for media integration and CEF/Chromium dropped support for Windows Vista.  The viewer at the bottom of this page may still work on Vista, but no promises. http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Alternate_Viewers#Obsolete_Platforms
