Google ProcessExplorer, download it. Check the where the process is running from. Also run a virus scan.
I am a washing machine. Do as I say.

Scan with AVG 8, spybot search & destroy and malwarebytes. You need to look at your processes and google search that process to find information about it.
http://www.geekstogo.com/ is a good place to go for computer problems if you need further help.

ps. Telling an unknowledgable person (about computers) to delete their system 32 folder is one of the lowest, extremely immature things someone can do.

Google the name of the files, that usually tells you what they are.

www.processlibrary.com

everytime something shows up u dont know what it is, just search it there and it will tell u what it is.

if its bad, close the process and delete the file, and google it to see if it leaves anything behind u should delete as well.

Your post is full of fail. Firstly, system32 is not the registry. Secondly, you can't "destroy your CPU" by changing the registry. Do you even know what the CPU is? (Here's a hint: it's not the main box part of your computer, but it is inside it)

It was implied in your post when they were talking about deleting system32 then you mentioned messing with the registry, which are different things. The registry is where Windows stores its variables basically, your files are not in there although there may be registry entries that point to files on your hard drive.

You're right in saying the CPU is the "brain" of the computer, even though things that are part of a human brain such as long and short term memory are separate entities in a computer. The CPU is purely number crunching. You can't change things in your CPU from windows, the most likely way of destroying it is if you managed to turn the fans off. Messing with windows might get you a messed up windows installation, breaking hardware isn't that likely.

There's no cure for cancer yet. Expose your computer to radiation to prolong it's lifespan. That is all you can do. We're all quite sad for your loss.
