here is some info on the file

 

http://www.processadvisory.com/library/iavlsp-dll

 

Check the file size and MD5 to be sure of authenticity

 

Looks like you just need to re-install System Mechanic Pro 7... funny product that I've not heard of before, seems legit, but hardly top class defense for your system.

 

edit:after reading reviews I would recommend you just remove that junkware from your machine. It is notorious for ruining OS's. You can use CCleaner (available in the downloads in this site) if you want an auto system cleaner/tweaker, that is relatively safe.

Anytime you come across a suspicious file or you want a second opinion, submit it to one of the following online services that analyzes suspicious files:--In the "File to Scan" (Upload or Submit) box, browse to the location of the suspicious file(s) and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis. If you get a message saying "File has already been analyzed", click Reanalyze or Scan again.

Iavlsp.dll = System Mechanic 7 Professional's Antivirus

System Mechanic is a comprehensive optimization suite by iolo that purports to improve performance, make repairs and enhance the speed of a computer. It includes a registry cleaner, a registry revitalizer (to fix "so called problems"), system optimizer and several other features.

These types of tools and the claims they make are borderline scams.

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons.
Why you should not use Registry Cleaners and Optimization Tools

System Mechanic Pro incorporates the same optimization suite but also purports to plug security holes and protect privacy, and includes System Shield AntiVirus & AntiSpyware.

There are several labs which test the effectiveness of major anti-virus programs to include AV-Comparatives.org, Virus Bulletin Comparative Tests, AV-Test.org, NSS Labs Consumer Anti-Malware Products Group Test Report, etc. I cannot find any which have tested System Shield AntiVirus & AntiSpyware. I would be skeptical of any vendor not participating in comparative testing. As such, I would recommend replacing System Shield with a more reputable anti-virus solution.
