Pop up messages on start up: RegSvr32, The module "C:\program" failed to load.

Original title: How Do I Fix RegSvr32 So Message Stops Popping Up?

Can anyone help me make sense of an error box I get pop up every time I have restarted my laptop? It pops up a good few minutes into turning my laptop on, but before I've opened any programs personally, and reads as follows:


The module "C:\program" failed to load.

Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or independent .DLL files.

The specified module could not be found.

As far as I can tell, everything on my laptop is running fine. As far as possible causes go... The only thing I could possibly associate it with, would be my uninstallation of a program that kept installing things on my laptop without my knowing. I believe it was technology by Applian.

I have the latest updates by VAIO (My laptop make), and Windows installed. Any help with this, and a suggestion on how to stop it happening would be great.
