It is trying to load a file that was deleted improperly. It has the go to boot in the registry but the actual file is gone so it just trys to start it anyways but it fails. Get CCleaner and run the reg cleaner. That should fix it. If not say something.

EDIT::

I googled that specific file error and that was caused from a recently removed virus. The anti virus you used deleted it without deleting the registry value to start it. Follow my first instructions still.

I've asked a mod to move this to the appropriate forum. Please ignore the advice in the post above and wait for a malware specialist to respond.

Such error messages...often occur because a malware item has left a pointer in startup. Even though the named item may have been removed, the pointer remains.

Download Autoruns for Windows: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx
No installation required.
Simply unzip Autoruns.zip file, and double click on autoruns.exe file to run the program.
Go File>Save, and save it as AutoRuns.txt file to know location.
You must select Text from drop-down menu as a file type:

Attach the file to your next reply.

Hello,

Please follow the advice provided by hamluis in post number 4

which I shall elaborate on:

To resolve this, download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.
  • Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if you're not sure how to do this.)
  • Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
  • Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
  • When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.
  • Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.
  • Right-click on the entry and choose delete.
  • Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.

When you say it happens when you "choose a new action", what does that mean?
