I did a scan with malwarebytes and it found two files pertaining to HpqSRmon.exe. I had malwarebytes take care of everything that they found(also 48 tracking files)and now when I boot the computer it says it can't find what it needs(installer). Do I really need to be concerned that these registry files were deleted?

My computer works fine like nothing important is missing except for the message on boot up. Thanks for any help you can give.

It is generally a legitimate file belonging to some HP printing type products however if it is found in a location other than the normal location it could be a fake copy which is usually an infection.

Thank you Raven,I ran my printer and it runs as normal so I'm thinking I'm not going to worry about it anymore. I did think it was funny that after I updated malwarebytes that it found these two files when it never did before. I'm just glad it appears it's not going to bother anything.

It happens at times that it will be a false positive, so it could be that the latest updates contains that type of problem.
You might want to post this over at malwarebytes forum to let them know about it and you might find it already mentioned there. They do like to hear about this kind of thing.
