"Already Running!" annoyance



I've been having a problem for a while now, and all my efforts of trying to get rid of it have failed

Almost every 30-60 minutes a windows pops up saying "Already running!!!"

The file that is running is named "System_280.dat" (looked in the Task Manager)

This is what i've tried:

1. Ran Ad-Aware, Spybot, TuneUp Utilities 2004, Systemworks 2004 and Registry Mechanic with no luck

2. I've searched and deleted two files which always comes back

1. "C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch\SYSTEM_280.DAT-240ED8E1.pf"

2. "C:\WINDOWS\system32\system_280.dat"

3. Deleted everything releated to system_280 in the registry

Appreciate any suggestions
