RunDLL error message after starting up

After starting up, I get this error message box. The box header says RunDLL. Then the box contains the following message:

Error loading C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\System\SYSPLA~2.DLL
The specified module could not be found.

What is it? How do I fix it? My computer seems to be working okay, but the message is annoying, and it has me concerned.

I would grab Autoruns run it with Administrator Privileges and find the offending entry and remove it.

Here is the solution:
1st: Download Auto Runs.
Click Here:
Link basis:
2nd: Find the yellow highlighted Image Paths that ends with sysmenu.dll. Usually you can locate those image paths from Scheduled Task.

3rd: Right click then delete.

4th: Try to find all yellow highlighted Image Paths that ends with sysmenu.dll from "Everything tabs, delete them.

NOTE: Carefully choose image paths that ends sysmenu.dll only, if you deleted paths that are not high lightened then it might cause some trouble booting your PC.

5th: Reboot Computer

6th: Wait at least 5 minutes to confirm that the issue has been resolved. (sysmenu.dll usually appears within a minute from rebooting the computer. )

Hope it helps :)

I did the same thing but still error showing

please help
