    Try using system file checker, you will need the original install Cd

    Start>Programs>Accessories>System tools>System Information .
    Select Tools>System file checker.

    That file is part of Ascentive Performance Center, is it compatible with WinME?

    Uninstall it and see if troubles go away.
