    This is likely a badware installation... temp2.exe is usually referring to the irc.momma worm.
    See the posts on this forum for removal of infestations. They are excellent advice.

    Currently, the most common cause of the temp2.exe error is the worm infestation. There could be others.
    Run antivirus and antispyware scans... AVG, Panda, Trend Micro, Computer Associates EZ Armor, Symantec all have free scans. This will help you rule out the worm, or tell you how to fix it.
    What you appear to have is the irc.momma worm... and a good, updated security software should be able to remove it... although don't count on Norton or McAfee to do so.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :)
