STasSV Module error warning

I'm using xp sp3, fresh format and install, loaded Dell drivers in correct order but every bootup I get STasSV Module has failed to load error message. I assume it's connected to my onboard sound card driver but I've reinstalled that several times and it's not a yellow in device manager. May be if I deleted the entry in the registry it might stop but I don't know where to look. Any suggestions?

TIA
