Where can I get the updated driver that the error message is referring to ?

Question

Everytime I have to reboot (sometimes to get my printer to work) I get a message that says "you recently ran a program which used an older version of the following file: c:\windows\system\ddeml.dll

and you will need to restart your computer to repair it" or something similar to that. I generally just click ok and then continue on: my question is:

What is that file? Do I need an updated version? Why do I care? and if I need it, how do I get it? I upgraded to 95 from 3.1 and am fairly computer illiterate.

It's been there for a long time, so I can't tell you if it's been only after I loaded a certain software.
