Unwanted error window Desktop XP

This window appears after completion of each boot-up, if I repeatedly click on Cancel or Continue it disappears, until next boot-up. Win XP(SP3) desktop, loads of memory etc and everything works as normal without any problems. Any ideas how I can stop this window appearing. I use TuneUp one click maintenance and Glary Utilities regularly, and as I said everything is working fine. TIA.

This can happen if you remove a peripheral - USB connected item - without using the 'remove safely' facility.

Have a look here and/or here it may resolve your problem.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I uninstalled my USB Mass Storage Devices then re-booted, no more unwanted window!!

Cheers.
