There's a bunch of different things that could cause this. Here's a couple of links about similar problems:http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=170086http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/44790/system-32-window/
Also, this could be a remnant from the removal of a virus infection, or could be from the removal of a legitimate program. Whatever it is, it used to reside in the System32 sub-directory.
For example, my Mailwasher program automatically calls my email client when I click on "Process Mail". And, if the email client has been removed, the folder that used to contain it will open.
Fixing it will require tracking down the culprit (and it may not be obvious from your startups). If this proves fruitless, then you may have to consider a repair install of XP to be rid of it.
