    just done a search in windows xp home and found no files on my computer called system32.exe
    can't think why there is an error
    it looks like you may have to repair your installation of windows, unless this problem can be solved by replacing the corrupted file

    I think the virus formed the system32.exe file and some how has created a boot record of it too some where (a file which tells it too load with windows) but i dont know where

    you could try running msconfig and checking the boot.ini file and startup items loaded
