    First thing I would do is look in startups for anything that maybe connected with this. Look in Msconfig>startups.

    You have to have a program that will unzip the archive files .zip Try this one

    http://www.7-zip.org/

    Print the page out I believe it has instructions on how to use it.

    You don't open .dll files. You have to place it in a directory, sometimes the Windows/System32 directory. You don't need an unzipping utility because XP has one built in it. I was hoping you read some of those links I provided to see if your problem was there. Simply downloading a .dll file isn't always the cure as you have to know where the .dll file goes. It's better to know what software is looking for the .dll file. This type of error almost always occurs when you remove software incorrectly. It might be that if some software was removed, an item may be still listed in the Startup Folder and Windows can't find the software to start it, thus the error.

    when looking at the error window i wrote down the title where it was coming from and typed it in the search file box and deleted what i didn't need and also had to delete from the add/delete programs. and now no more pop up errors when starting up my computor. (i didn't need that program anymore) everything is working fine now.
    thanks

    Great and thank you for posting back. This might be helpful to others with the same problem. Like I posted before, this type of problem is almost always due to improperly un-installed software.
