Well, I can't find anything on those file names, or that directory name (closegloballist) either, but it is just safe to assume that the file is malatious in some way.
If you want, you can try and run Filemon from Sysinternals ( and see what this file "error trans shim.exe" is doing, what other files it's opening, and what in the Registry it calls.
You could also run Fport from Foundstone ( and see if this EXE file keeps a port open.
hope this helps

boy hope you registry jocks know how to backup stuff. think virus jocks are winning when i see you ready to rip stuff out without knowing what it is. tease - i know you are trying to find out!
since you did not mention your os, make wild guess the soula of justice running win2k.
i searched for windows 2000-developer (wild guessing) and keyword shim and found this i thought looked interesting..
i can't believe you rejected Joesph Moores fine information. i wrote it down myself.
Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 324452
16-Bit Program May Stop Responding While Calling GlobalAlloc
View products that this article applies to.
This article was previously published under Q324452
<snipped out warning about editing registry cause knew you wouldn't read it anyhow ;&gt>
If a 16-bit program calls GlobalAlloc, the program may stop responding, and you may receive the following error message:

Program Name caused a General Protection Fault in module KRNL386.EXE at 0001:6382
Choose close. Program Name will close.
NOTE: The hexadecimal address where the problem occurs is exactly 0001:6382.
This issue may occur because in Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 (SP2) and later, a program compatibility shim loads in the Ntvdm.exe address space to propagate environment variables. This behavior may affect a 16-bit program, which is sensitive to 16-bit memory allocations.
To work around this problem, delete the following registry key, and then restart the computer:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\AppCompatibility\ntvdm.exe

The 16-Bit Windows Programming guidelines recommend that GlobalAlloc be called only when it is necessary. These guidelines recommend that you use LocalAlloc instead.
The information in this article applies to:
Microsoft Windows 2000 Server SP2
Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server SP2
Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional SP2
