Error message on boot up

  Dukeofkenpas 16:15 02 Mar 2010

Windows XP. Every tome I boot up I get an error message: RegOpenKeyEx() failed. I click on ok and another error message appears befind it: load failed. i click on this and it goes and everthing seems ok. It is just an irritant
I have checked start up items via MSCONFIG and AUTORUN, excluding one or two items relating to IExplorer but it keeps coming back like the proverbial bad penny.
Help please

You might want to run one of the many free registry scanners over it - sounds like a registry problem.
