Error Message on boot-up

When re-booting a Windows 8 workstation, a message appears with the title "Run.DLL" and the message "Error in mmsys.cpl missing entry! mmseRunOnce".  
1) How would I fix this?
2) Could this error be the cause of the user having issues with Outlook 2013 where on a fairly regular basis, there are extreme delays with the email displaying and often times locking up with a message indicating "not enough memory"?  The computer has 12Gb memory so the actual memory of the computer should never be an issue.

Most likely a corrupt registry key or startup value.

I would go to msconfig > disable any startup programs that are not familiar or has that path
Go to start > run > 'regedit"
browse to both
check for any remnants of programs that should not be running

You can also use Ccleaner to scan for missing files / reg keys

I always recommend backing up your registry if you're going to modify it.
