Yea you need to go into your registry and check your run and autorun keys for any malware related startups.

Or you can us this program: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902

Also run Malwarebytes: http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html
Key locations:

Windows registry includes the following four keys:


Also you can use process explorer to try and find what is causing that message if it happens durring any other time besides startup.

Weird... could be a random dll name from some malware... try running HijackThis and post the log here
Free Tool: IP Lookup

Get more info about an IP address or domain name, such as organization, abuse contacts and geolocation.

Get a copy of Autoruns from Microsoft and search for the "dll file"


More information

Remove it once found, or else if you face any difficulty working with the autoruns then you could just save the autorun entries of you system and post it here.

To save the autorun entries do the following:
Click --> File --> Save.
Name the file "filename.arn" (filename could be any name)

You might want to zip the arn file before posting it here for further analysis.

Its probably due to Malware, as already suggested.  
After running Malwarebytes(already recommended), try Hitman Pro, a second opinion scanner:
Hitman Pro http://www.surfright.nl/en/hitmanpro

You could follow that with the ESET Online Scanner, a free, & powerful tool:

Regrettably HijackThis will not necessarily find anything, since more recent Malware have continued to evolve ...rootkits, for example, are not usually detected by HJT.

If still unresolved, Dr.Web CureIt! is another very capable tool:

Hi guys.

I ran Malwarebytes and it crashed my system. So complete was this "bombing" that the task manager would not start. The PC had to be shutdown without exiting XP.

The other suggested software didn't find the problem. So, I ran Registry Crawler 4.5 and it found the false entry in a blink, and allowed its deletion.  I should have done this this before posting (DOH!). Thanks for the advice. Here is a link to this software. It's great!


Thanks again.
Okay, thanks for updating us.
