WinSit is a part of a virus (worm) as far as I know - it might be a good thing that the executable cannot be found.
I believe it is normally started by the line:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Shell
in the registry - this value should be set to "Explorer.exe" - if it is WinSit.exe then replace the value with Explorer.exe.
If not, it could also be started by an entry in one of the Run keys in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
or even as a shortcut in the startup folder of the user account you are logging into or the "All Users" profile.

Go to start->run and type msconfig
then go to the startup tab and see whats booting up when your computer turns on.

Also recommend scanning with the Kaspersky free online virus scanner which is a good way to find out if you have any viruses or spyware without having to uninstall your existing antivirus software>

As soon as the cleanup has been completed, i recommend you download and install SP3:
