It looks like you've had a virus, timber, click here , you'll have to do a bit of registry editing to get rid of some rogue entries. Instructions at that link above. Remember to disable System Restore first, this will delete all your restore points, so when you have cleaned your registry and done an up to date virus scan, re-activate System Restore and create a new restore point.

I forgot to say, timber, "system32.exe" does not exist in Windows XP, it's not a Windows file.
