DLL 'C:\Windows\system32\sqlctr90.dll' failed. Performance data will not be available

I am receiving the following Application error in the Event Viewer on my SBS 2008 server:

"The Open Procedure for service 'MSSQL$SOLARWINDS_ORION' in DLL 'C:\Windows\system32\sqlctr90.dll' failed. Performance data for this service will not be available."

I have uninstalled SOLARWINDS application, but "MSSQL$SOLARWINDS_ORION" wasn't removed from "Services" during the uninstall, even though I rebooted the server afterwards. Hence, I have just disabled that service, but the above error still appears in the Event Viewer. It doesn't seem to cause any other issues, however I would appreciate advice on how to stop this error from occuring please.

This is the Perfomance monitoring wizard who gives this error.

I guess it will go away if you manually delete the service from the registry.  You can find these in:
'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services'
