I get these errors every time I boot my computer:

Running Windows 7 Home...I google these and get no hits. Anyone know what the issue is or what I can do to troubleshoot further? I have anti-virus running and am a pretty savvy user so I don't think its a virus/malware.

They look like leftovers of some malware/spyware that was removed from your system, probably by your antivirus/antispyware application.

Since you say you're a pretty savvy user, I would recommend removing these RunDLL errors by modifying registry.

Open Registry Editor, scroll to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and see if you can find any startup commands related to these dlls. If so, delete them.

If they're hidden somewhere else use this tool to find a remove them. Autoruns for Windows

If you're still having this problem, try creating dummy files with these names and extensions in that location and see what happens.

Sure enough that was it - there was one in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\..\Run and one in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\..\Run, made a backup in case something screws up down the road. – brendan Oct 22 '10 at 16:35
