start>run>msconfig>Startup Tab, and uncheck the entry for ntdevice.exe

First of all, there is no valid windows file for XP named this. It is 99% most likely viral. What are you using for AV?

"NTDEVICE.EXE"

It is a relatively new threat. If you wanna scan the file for yourself, find it on your file system, and upload it here.....
