That's quite funny, because i don't have a file named system32.exe anywhere on my system.
Run Housecall and see what it comes up with.

Your antivirus has deleted the viral file but not repaired the registry.

Just check and "fix" these entries in the HijackThis Scanlog:

F0 - system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\System32\system32.exe
F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\System32\system32.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [SystemSAS] system32.exe

These can go too, close all browser windows before clicking "fix checked"
