In my opinion there is no such thing as a safe registry cleaner free or otherwise.  You can use several very good cleaners though, but you should backup your registry first and be careful what you delete.

CCleaner from Piriform
SpyDLLRemover (will delete the dll and tell you if it is rootkit related)
Advanced System Care (free version)

If you find out it is a rootkit, read my article/review on free rootkit removers:

Does the error pops up during start up?
If so, have you tried disabling the startup entry via msconfig?

Or use HijackThis to check for the relevant startup entry and let it fix the relevant entry.

Or check out this page, these reg keys might also be relevant.

If it is indeed in startup using a tool like autoruns will let you see it and disable it.
