Try Moveonboot

You select the file(S) to be removed, reboot and Moveonboot will remove them. Be careful what you select. it's a powerful program and will remove anything you select.

or why not try one of the free anti-virus utilities, like AVG Free AV. You can also try their AVG anti-spyware, also free. For a firewall, try ZoneAlarm.

You might try another program that will scan the registry and find any files that may be damaged or leftover from uninstalled programs first. Then you can safely remove them without accidentally removing something you shouldn't. It may even list the files you are getting the error from. There are a few programs that will do this and many are free and you can get them at Here is a list to get you started:
