    The Connapi.dll file is associated with the PC Connectivity Solution to help your computer communicate with the Nokia PC Suite application. When you connect your phone to a computer, the Connapi.dll file will be used to correctly connect the phone to the Nokia PC Software so it can download any updates or patches. Although this file is highly important for the smooth operation of the Nokia PC Suite, it’s continually causing a large number of problems and issues which will lead your system to run much slower and with a lot of problems. To fix this, you should resolve any of the potential errors which are leading the error to show, which can be done by following the steps in this tutorial.

    Click Start-run and type msconfig. Go to start tab and uncheck (according with sjklein42) anything about nokia. Check out if there's any entry about LaunchApplication.exe and uncheck it if it is there too. Click accept and reboot. You will be prompt with a text box to agree the changes and not to show that message again.
    If you are not sure what to do this or not sure if you are doing it right you can attach another screenshot with the msconfig/start and we'll tell you what we thnk you can uncheck.

    If you are still unable to find the DLL which is loaded then Autoruns from Microsoft would help

    If you would need more help working with it do let us know.

    Are you experiencing other issues? Reason I ask is because it looks like your Office installation has been removed..... And whats the installer running in the background on logon? Perhaps that's what is throwing the error ?

    I have removed all mobile application software. Also reinstall Ms-office but issue remain same. Any other  alternative solution will be better.

    Did you enter in the msconfig? Can you attach a screenshoot of the start tab? (in msconfig, I mean. The way to enter msconfig was posted above)
