Windows 7: Error Message on Start Up

Error Message on Start Up


Everytime I restat or turn on my computer once Windows 7 loads I get a popup message with this error:

There was a problem starting
The specified module could not be found

Any ideas what the problem is? I assume the file in question is either missing or has become corrupted. It doesnt seem to be causing any problems I can simply close the error message and everything works fine, however I would like to fix it if possible.

A google search for that file yields no results - that is suspicious.
I'd suggest one of these free, online scans to make sure that nothing has snuck by your current malware protection: Malware
