SQL Server Error - File not Found: xpstar.dll

Everytime i open SQL Server 2000 i get this error "File not Found: xpstar.dll".
I have copied this file in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Binn directory. But the next time when i SQL Server, i again got this error.
Can anyone tell me why this is happening???

Thanks for your Suggestions.  Anyway, I have stopped the server right now for time being and shifted the database some where else.

Now the database is running fine on another system
