yep looks like spyware to me. i would go ahead and run spybot or adaware ...or both. or you could just use that dell restore CD. the reason the sys32 folder keeps popping up at startup is because a program or service is calling up a file which does not exist or is not in the location specified. looks like you have loads of spyware on your OS, i would just start over.
Run Adaware then Spybot (ensure both are updated.....do it manually if you cant connect)......and when Spybot has finished press its TOOLS tab then the Start Up tab and untick anything from there as MSConfig can sometimes be fussy on what it lets you do........plus of course you've got less chance of breaking something.
