Should  you require Adaware and Spybot, here they are.
First check for New updates then download them before scanning:

Ad-Aware SE Personal v1.06: http://www.majorgeeks.com/Ad-Aware_SE_Personal_d506.html

Spybot-Search & Destroy 1.4: http://www.majorgeeks.com/SpyBot-Search_&_Destroy_d2471.html

In the same vein as that article, there is a newsgroup posting that suggests simply deleting the URTTemp directory. It's not a system directory and may simply be left over from a previous installation:

http://groups.google.com.au/group/microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support/browse_thread/thread/17197fa82dab6cf1/124cb2ac5d38dc66?lnk=st&

As that posting says, you can always back it up (eg. rename it and/or more it to somewhere else on your hard drive, not under c:\windows in case you ever need it again).

I will try all of this. Ran adware/spybot and win defender and have 2005 norton internet security. I found urttemp renamed it copied original and deleted it. Will see how it goes for awhile.

The adware/spybot, etc. did not seem to fix it. However the URTTEMP move I did has prevented the error from happening for the last 2 or 3 days.
Thanks
Accepted mfteal's entry and hope I closed it out correctly.
