Windows 7: when starting windows i get a rundll error

when starting windows i get a rundll error

hey guys,

everytime when i start windows
i get the following message:

"There was a problem starting msihsz32.dll
The specified module could not be found"

i've tried to search on this issue in google but with no success,
it could be related to some program i've installed or something
but don't really know which one.

how can i make it go away?
thanks alot!

what anti virus are you using? did it find any infections? if your OS is 64 bit download the 64 bit version of MSE Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows and post back if it finds anything.

several times.

does it only pop up when you start the computer? or while using it too?, could you post a screen shot of your start up items in msconfig?
