invalid dll at start up

I am having a error message pop up when I boot up my computer. It says that it is trying to call an illegal dll.
IT started when I was trying to install a HP printer. I know the printer drivers was for the wrong os. I removed the software but it keeps looking for that driver.  How can I go in and find where it is looking for that driver and get rid of it.  I removed the printer too, but still no luck.

Thanx

Download Regclean from MS, yes, it'll work with Win98.  This utility will auto scan and fix *most* of the error in your registry, try it
       to see if it helps:

       ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/Softlib/MSLFILES/REGCLEAN.EXE

       If that doesn't help.... Maybe you can try doing it the hard way...  Try to extract all files from the driver, take note of the *.dll file
       name, and do as my rejected answer.  Good luck....

Take note of the file name, and run Regedit.exe look for that file name entries and delete all of them.  Then run Win.ini and System.ini do the same and delete all related entries.

The problem is when the error message comes up it does not tell me the name of the dll.
