Do you get this error on startup in safe mode (Reboot and hit F8 repeatdly until a menu shows)?

An application was likely removed or uninstalled. Go to Start > Run > msconfig > Boot tab
Uncheck any program that's no longer on the computer (ie. Can't be found if you went to its folder with explorer). Apply the changes and restart the computer when prompted.
