Something is telling windows to import that file. It no longer exists and therefore you get that message. If you get the message on the dark screen before windows takes over, it is being called from autoexec.bat. Have a look there first. If you don't find anything in there
download and run Startup log . Here's the link. Run it and then copy and paste the results in a post here if you need help analyzing the results.

Don't worry about it. To look at autoexec.bat, you open it in Notepad. If you don't understand it you are in good company. It's not my favorite either. At any rate, Startup Log will show the contents of your Autoexec.bat. 10 pages? What I do is run Startup log and it opens with the results.
I then go to the toolbar and select edit >select all
Press CTRL+c to copy

Open a post here and paste it in.

It'll probably will show up in Msconfig/Startup, as it usually starts up from the registry.

Go to Start/run, and type Msconfig.

Go to the Startup tab, and check whether there's an item resembling this:

"OPQFile"="C:\\WINDOWS\\regedit.exe /s C:\\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM\\rad2138.tmp"

Uncheck it, click OK, close Msconfig, and reboot.

Good luck,
