Default "not a valid win32 application!"

I have a winxp machine with 2 hard drives. For the last few days everytime I click on a mp3 file or setup.exe file on my second drive, the above message flashes. What could be the reason, and how do I rectify it?

Also, a few days back I had installed netmirc application. Though I have since deleted it, five notepad files titled 'program' pile up at each start up. How do I get rid of this annoyance? Thanks

Update anti virus scanners and run.
Download regseeker or CC and run.
Report back if errors still occur.
Did you unstall that program from add/remove programs?
