Could be almost any program, more likely something in your statup. Remove everything in Startup by doing a file run c:\msconfig.exe and uncheck use Startup. Reboot and see if it happens again. If not start adding one at a time back until you find the problem software.
Just a sample of the thousands of runtime error 52's out there:

Error #52
BAD FILENAME: A filename entered at the command line or in ICSETUP does not follow the operating system naming conventions.

PORT ERROR: Communication port is not valid on this machine.

good Luck,
