It is a file from the program PC Guard. If you are using this program then you need to reinstall it. If you are not using this program then you need to remove it from Add/Remove Programs or you can click on Start>Run>type msconfig>check Selective Startup in the first tab>Click the Start Up Tab>uncheck anything in this area that has Blue Yonder or PC Guard in the name.

i determined that telus eprotect software was the reason for the error msg and reinstalled and not getting anymore errors from this. although now getting activex and ole com fails in registrysmart.

Some activex errors are to be expected in the registry because of the installing and uninstalling of software. Can you fix the errors? I would also recommend downloading CCCleaner and run the Cleanup and Registry Tools.
