Hi Cruzmar, and welcome to GeekstoGo.

Are you certain the filename is "pgkcsp32.dll" and not "gpkcsp32.dll?
In any case, can you please read the Malware and Cleaning Guide, and open a new topic according to the instructions in that topic? There's a fair chance you've got some malware on your system that's causing this.
One of our trained malware fighters will then work with you to get to the root of the issue, and clear it up.
