Apparently that error is related to Creative Technology software. It is not compatible with Win 10.
You could try uninstalling the Creative software. or have a look on their site for an updated driver and/or software.

Or try running SFC /SCANNOW

  • Click in the "Search the web and Windows" box at the bottom left.
  • Type in "cmd" with out the the quotes.
  • You should see "Command Prompt" "Desktop App".
  • Right click on it an select "Run as Administrator"
  • When the command prompt app appears, type in SFC /SCANNOW
See how that goes.
Hope this helps.

Ok, well you can download Autoruns.
  • Run it.
  • When it is finished, type in P17RunE.dll in the search box.
  • When/if it finds where the system is trying to run, untick the box next to that line.
  • That will disable it only.
  • Reboot and see how it goes.

Thanks much, no longer it gives error at startup :). Btw that program found that P17RunE.dll on this registry HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. Should i delete it if possible or i should just keep it unticked like that?

Just leave it unticked. It won't do any harm disabled.

If all is good, please mark the thread as solved.

Cheers.

I get the same error message, and I DO have Creative Labs Sound Blaster Z. Have tried reinstalling the Creative Labs stuff, and A) I still get the error message at start-up, and B) sound is still messed up.

I don't want to disable it, because I figure it's connected with the issue with the sound problems I'm having.

Edit: I should also mention that Creative Labs told me to come here, so please don't say "go there."
