Whenever I start my computer, this error message pops up:

"Error loading C:\WINDOWS\system32\soundmix.dll
The specified module cannot be found."

What is this error, why does it occur, and how do I fix it?

My laptop's relatively new (er, 1 month old? :whistling:)), so I'm surprised that this error is occuring...
