Basicly I downloaded a trojan downloading program and in the course of removing it I messed with the win32 file, a stupid move I know but we all make mistakes.Now all the malware is gone but the system is real tempremental.
There are some excellent free utilities that are very well equiped to do this sort of thing for you. One of those, the Ewido Trojan scanner has been purchased recently by the makers of AVG (Grisoft) and is renamed to AVG Anti-Spyware...it too is free and can be downloaded HERE. As for the Win32 file, do you mean System32? The files are windows core files that you would not be able to delete. If you WERE able to delete or otherwise cause some corruption to one of them, the Windows File Check would immediately replace it.
The fact that you say your system is tempermental makes me pause at your statement "now all the malware is gone"...I have my doubts. Download and run the AVG Anti-Spyware utility to be sure...even then, there may be some that linger
Any attempt at win updates makes the system crash and occasionaly when I turn on the computer it says service and control app error and then when I send a report it begins a 1 minute countdown til shutdown. I have tried both Registry Mechanic and RegistryFix.
The behavior you describe is also caused by malware (sometimes). Your next sentence here is somewhat telling. Your "tempermental" problems may be due to the use of these Registry Cleaners. May...is the key word. When you use them, do you investigate each entry that they present for removal or do you just blindly remove everything that is suggested? It has been my experience working the various help forums that users more often than not, will have problems thinking them to be malware that turns out to be from using these Registry cleaners. The reason is because these users WILL remove everything that is presented without investigating. That is like shooting in the dark. If this describes you, please navigate those applications to locate any back-up copies that may have been made and restore them. You can use the Windows Live One Care for this same purpose but I believe it to be much safer. If you have Windows XP, the system restore will create a backup before anything is removed from the Registry. It will also scan for viruses and a variety of malware. Post back if you are still having issues. Thanks!

I tried that as suggested and It said I needed to insert the disc for files to be copied to DLL cache. I ran the scan again with the disc in the drive Glad you were able to locate a disk to use....and it didn't prompt me to do anything so I assumed it was fixed so I restarted my computer and then tried to update, my system crashed again and displayed the error message as above.
When I restarted my computer I got this error message.
Services & ControllApp error.
