Error Messages Win XP Pro

I am plagued by an "ekrn.dll error " message frequently in Win XP. i believe it is something to do with the ESET NOD32 Anti Virus I run on the PC. I run the same anti virus program on Win 7 with no problems.

I am also getting an "svchost.dll" error message each time I shutdown or restart Windows. Any help greatly appreciated! Thanks.

anyhow, scan with spybot  : Spybot :        http://www.download.com/3000-8022-10122137.html
Yes, the ekrn.exe error is connected with the software ESET NOD32 Antivirus, more details here>

How to remove ekrn error:

Note that some Malware camouflage themselves as ekrn.exe, so i recommend you run at least one Malware scanner.

Initially try downloading & updating Malwarebytes anti-Malware, from here:

Run in normal mode.
Tutorial, if required:

If unresolved try Hitman Pro, a second opinion scanner:
