    These are probably malware files and you don't want them back. Use:

    Startup Control Panel
    Startup Control Panel (Exe version for Vista)

    to find the programs that start when you boot and remove any you don't want or need, including any malware-related ones that led to that message.

    You can test by right-clicking the startups and choosing to run them to see which one of the ones you do not recognize brings up the error.
