It seems that registry tries to launch a file at start up. Download CCleaner, Choose Tools--> Start Up. Take a look at the list and figure out which programs are called at start up. Maybe you'll find the missed files. Then delete the registry which calls this missed file and you'll have no problem more.

Hello kurila,

Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications.
There are a number of them available and some are more safe than others. Keep in mind that no two registry cleaners work entirely the way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad" entry. One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause a problem when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.

Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly can have disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again..
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

Out of curiosity, are you given the name of the file in the error message?

The next step depends on whether or not this file really should be loaded.

Sorry, I was a bit unclear earlier. What I meant to say is, if you tell us the name of the file, perhaps we can help you come up with the next step to reach a solution.
