Now and then I keep getting up a dialog box headed
"syskey32.exe".

The message in it is :

syskey32.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

When I click on "Don't Send" I get a dialog box headed "Program Error" inside which it says :

syskey32.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will need to restart the program. An error log is being created.

I can click on OK and it goes away, but what can I do to get rid of the problem for good?
I've done a check with Norton 360 and SpySweeper.

It's located in C:\WINDOWS\system32

I've tried deleting it, but after a restart, it reappears.

Right-click on it, in system32, choose Properties > Version tab and see which company it belongs to, or any other info there is on it.
