Have a look for this exe in Win.ini.
Have had trouble in the past with incomplete removal of something entirely different, and then found the last trace in the listings of win.ini

There isnt a lot in win .ini or any of the otheres and the file isnt there i found a win32 but not a win 32.exe in windows folder but i dont want to delete the wrong thing and it says its a microsoft file.

You could try renaming it say NBGwin32 and see what happens!!

Confession - I am not sure, but a search over my whole complex system shows variations of win32 but always as dll or similar files. There is none with exe nor win32 on its own.

This is proving harder than expected i have folowed links provided and all tho they not identical they do share certain things the trouble is when i try one thing another pops up
i deleted the win32.exe file i had then another called task 32.ini appeared and asked for net rights i cant find this file on my pc either i have ran searches all over the pc in diff names and variations and i cannotfind exact match closest was a rundll32 file as i dont know what that does i dont want to delete it,AVG controll panel has not shut down since i stopped win32.exe in msconfig but how can i be sure AVG is still runing and not just saying it is ?
i have ran the online trojan scan at click here and it was clean but i know my pc and to me it seems like it wrong.

Right progress i think i have found out it is WORM/AKOSW that i had dont knoe where i got it but it there i ran a program that picked it up in the reg as a run now processs it renamed the file so hopefully it cured it didnt say any thin about removal or deletion so i dont know,what i do know is it took nearly 6 hours to find the bugger lol but hopefully now it sorted.
