I could not find any information on this BUQGXLNA.DLL file, which make me suspect that it is malware related. It is likely that your antivirus or antispyware identified this file and deleted it, but there is still a startup reference somewhere. See if you can located the startup reference using AutoRuns and delete it. This should stop the error message from popping up again.

I agree with Budapest. The file is probably an orphaned entry related to a program (or malware) that was set to run at startup. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it. The file may have been removed during an anti-virus scan, the uninstall of a program or use of a specialized fix tool. However, an associated registry entry is telling Windows to load it when you boot up.

When Windows loads, it looks for any files associated with registry entries for programs that are set to run at startup. If the file was removed but not the entry, Windows will display an error message indicating that the file was not found. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the program when it loads. Using Autoruns to remove the entry should stop the error message.
