Out of Curiosity,have you tried re-installing Adobe Reader?
That is what "reader_sl.exe" is associated with and referring to when it says "Reinstalling the application may fix this problem."
Reader_sl.exe is part of Adobe Acrobat Reader. Try uninstalling it and reinstalling it. Or if you want, just delete the icon from the Start > Programs > Startup. The app is really not necessary to run at startup
