runtime error message

During bootup I will get a runtime error message regarding DISCover.exe that
reads; This application has requested that Runtime terminate it in an unsual
way,contact support for more info. ??? Everything runs normal so I'm guessing
it's not to serious.

DISCover Drop & Play System Executable belong to either; DISCover Drop &
Play System or Internet explorer.
Located in C:\Program Files\DISC\DISCover.exe
The software company website:
http://www.discoverconsole.com/

Try to remove it from start up list by locating its entry here:
Open a run command and type in:
regedit click [OK] then locate this KEY:
[-]HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\windows\Curre ntversion\Run = look in
the right pane/window for the entry and remove it.
Close the Registry and Reboot your machine, does it help?.

I read that a worm created recently can call itself Discover.exe and it
called AutoRun and you can get it through downloading infected Games from
unknown source!.
So, scan your machine thoroughly with an up2date security software for both
malware and viruses.

Run disk clean up and then run this command:
sfc /scannow
