Hi, Welcome to Seven Forums.

Seems like you installed a third party program and this exe was installed with that and then you might have uninstalled that program and it did not got removed properly and some files were left. Now, that program is trying to find that file and cannot find it. Go to Control Panel> Programs and Features and check if there are any programs which is not needed but still in the list. Scan the PC for any virus attacks and run anti malware.

Keep us posted.
