It's probably a shortcut in the start menu that is looking for a program that has been moved or delete. Just a guess.
More info would be very helpfull

G0liath is probably right, check your start folder in the
programs menu,
if it isn,t there, you can run start>sysedit and click on win.ini
file and look at the run= or load= command and see if it's there, if not then run start>regedit. goto edit/find and type the exact name of the file in error in the box.
press find.  if it shows up, and you are sure that it doesn't seem to harm the system, press delete to remove the reference in
the registry, next press f3 and see if it is in there again,
and again, until you get the finished searching the registry message. then reboot and see if the error is still there,
if none of the above helps, then there is a call from a dll file or some other file that is calling on that file,,,
harder to find...
PS Please back up your system.dat and user.dat file in c:\windows
first....   (hidden, system, file)

the program you are running is called Launchpad

Edit WIN.INI and remove the entry C:\LAUNCHPD\LPLOCKER in the load= line will take care of it.
