You didn't say if this was pre log in or after the user is logged on that you get the error message.
If it is post log on, have you gone in to Startup and removed this entry?
Click Start, Run and type MSCONFIG.
Locate the Startup tab and the vtuikaph.dll entry. Remove the checkmark next to this entry and reboot.

That looks like a Vundo file, and there may still be infection present.
It would help if we could see what was going on with your computer. I suggest that you download, run, and upload a HijackThis log from the link below.

http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/_download/HJTInstall.exe

Click on "Do a system scan and save a log file" button. Post the text from the log file. Do not have HJT fix anything at this point.

Please do not post the log into the comment window. Use "Attach File" under the comment window to post the log.

That's just a registry remnant from the infection, the bad file is already gone but the reg entry is still present and is still trying to load the file which no longer present.
Unchecking the relevant entry in msconfig to stop it from loading or deleting the entry in the registry will fix the error.

Also if you have Hijackthis, fixing the relevant entry(usually 04 line) will stop the error.
