you will have to troubleshoot by disabling the startup items (in taskmanager/startup) until you find the offending app

Hi.

When you are facing that message, what's the windows' title?
You can also find the offending process by starting procmon and selecting the error windows with the crosshair gadget procmon offers. procmon is a downloadable freeware from Microsoft.
