Whenever I start Windows, it complains that it cannot start Google Crash Helper, because it's a 16-bit application. Quite apart from the fact that I find that ludicrously unlikely, I also can't find any reference to GoogleCrashHelper.exe in the registry to begin with. What does the error actually mean, and how can I make it go away?

I'm not sure if you managed to solve this problem, and you're right that it does seem strange - possibly some kind of corruption in the executable.

To remove it from startup you could use Sysinternals' Autoruns. It should show up somewhere there, as Autoruns has quite an extensive list of locations it examines for startup applications.
