Cannot find printer.exe

I was given an older laptop. It had HP printer software installed and I uninstalled it but when I start the laptop I get the popup message "Windows cannot find C:\WINDIWS\system32\printer.exe". Any ideas about solving this problem? It's annoying and may slow down an already slow startup.There are no printers listed in Device Manager.I cannot find a copy of this file anywhere.
