DLL Install Conflicts
Sounds like you have a corrupted ActiveX control. Fortunately it is very easy to verify this by locating a folder in your Windows sub folder call Downloaded Program Files. c:\(windows)\Downloaded Program Files\.
Once you open this folder you can right click the ActiveX control entry and select update or in most cases choose Properties to diagnose a problem. When you select Properties, you'll be presented with a popup with three tabs, the dependency tab, when selected, may have a notice that the Control is damaged/broken. If it is, back out and then right click the Control in question and choose Remove. When needed the ActiveX control will download again.
If however, you get this Alert of an attempt to relocate in memory a critical system file then chances are high this ActiveX control is Malware or a Trojan because according to Microsoft programming standards, there is never a reason to change that DLL in question and this is one of many DLLs that have reserved addresses in memory for a reason. It would only be attempting to change that file if you are under attack.
To be certain you are virus/malware/trojan clean go to:
