Whenever I boot up windows XP(home) at the log in screen I get an error window saying:

winpol.exe - Application Error

It then has a window talking about referenced memory and offers me to hit 'OK' to close or Cancel to debug. From what I have found elsewhere online winpol.exe is a trojan but I believe its gone (since it can't find it) but this error is annoying.

I have already ran SpyBot and SuperAntiSpyware several times and they were no help.
