  1. Hello every one

    Recently I run into a problem on my Pc. Every time I try to open add/remove
    I get the error message cannot open . it is being used by another program
    system32. I try to look for system 32 on C:\windows but could not find it .
    Any help would be great as I am affraid that My pc is infected by virus
    What should I do?
    I have XP INSTALED

    Thank you
