    I updated to XP service pack 3, long story short, kept on getting a BSOD so I had to bust out my Sony Recovery Disc. After finishing and installing the anti-virus, this popped up.

    Dont worry, its a false positive. Error with Symantec and Macafee definitions.
    Update your AV, and it wont detect it again.
