Kernel fault check

I'm not sure I have spyware but I certainly have some issue with my IBM notebook running XP SP2. That's why I'm posting here-- I hope that's right.

Spyware Sweeper constantly tells me that there is a kernel fault check that supposedly wants to run and WinPatrol says a new auto startup program has been detected and do I want to allow it to open with each start. The only description I see is a "%systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -k" notation. Except for the Spy
Sweeper and WinPatrol warnings the computer runs fine. I had been trying to get my Bluetooth USB dongle to connect with my Pocket PC immediately before this happened the first time. MS antispyware, Adaware, and Spybot indicate no problems. Is the kernel fault thing suspicious or should I let it run.

Thanks for any help.
