Good evening!

I am encountering an annoying error message every time I boot up my computer.
This error just recently began showing up even though I've owned my computer for 3-ish years now.

Pentium® D CPU 2.80 GHz
2.79 Ghz 2.0 GB Ram

I'm running:
Windows XP Media Edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 3

When I fire up my computer and log in, an alert box pops up with the following message

Error in: C:\Windows\System32\Spool\Drivers\W32X861\3\DLCCtime.dll
Missing Entry: RunDLLEntry

Simply clicking OK and going about my business, this error doesn't seem to impede anything

Checking around online, I've found a few topics open on this exact matter. It's related to the printer I have attached.
It is a Dell Photo 924

Following the advice I've found from other sites (from back in 2005/2006) , here is what I've tried:

1. Uninstalling and Reinstalling the printer -- This didn't seem to do anything at all. When I restarted my machine the error popped up as it always has.

2. Ran a HiJackThis and manually remove the entry -- This worked! I would restart and would receive no error. Until I'd print something out. After printing something out, the next time my machine is fired up, the error comes back.

3. Used Regedit to manually remove the entry -- This worked same as HiJackThis.

It seems that I can clean this file out all I want, but it just keeps coming back.

Suggestions are very much appreciated.
It's not slowing me down at all, but it is rather annoying.

Thank you
