When I try to start QGIS by clicking the icon pinned to the taskbar, I get a popup window with this error message:

qgis-bin.exe - System Error
The code execution cannot proceed because qgis_gui.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.

However, QGIS starts up without a problem from the start menu or from the desktop shortcut. The problem is only when trying to start from the taskbar icon.
