I would run msconfig and start unchecking startup items...one at a time..then reboot to see if the message goes away

If this is a standalone PC I would do as suggested, check msconfig but also run a bootup scan, either boot from a USB drive and ran a virus scan or if your virus software has it schedule a boot time scan so you PC can be scanned before Windows loads.
