Windows 7: Help with error extermination: Application disallows

Help with error extermination: Application disallows

Friends I have a repetitive error that I get on every bootup/run of my trusty thinkpad: this is Win7 Home Prem x64.
I paste below the whole error. First, is this a legitimate error or something that is a known red herring in Windows 7? Secondly, how do I track down and fix the offending Application? I have no idea what it may be but if I can just nail it, I'll go dig around in the settings and see if I can find a gun smoking.
