Such messages...often appear when malware has been on the system and subsequently removed...but a pointer to the malware remains as a startup item.

A Google search brings no results for yjvlqvhg.dll.

You can use a startup manager...to examine your "Run Once" entries and delete the reference.

Some common startup managers include:

Starter (for Startups) - http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/System-...k/Starter.shtml

Startup Control Panel - http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml

Startup Inspector - http://www.windowsstartup.com/startupinspector.php

I would remove it.

<<is any other elsewhere malfunction in this?>>

Well...it's not a Windows file and it's not associated with a needed program that I can see. I can't answer your question, since I cannot determine all possible associations. I can only say that I would remove it.

FWIW: From what I see...the vast majority of those items listed...can be disabled. If the startup does not relate to Windows itself or something like Java or Flash or an AV/Firewall program, there is little need for such to run at startup.

The directions for using...Startup Inspector (or any other application used for such purposes) should cover user options.
