This is a good way of removing Badtrans files and reg keys:

Restart Windows in Safe Mode (reboot your computer, as soon as you see the text Starting Windows at the bottom of the screen, hit the F5 key).

Find the following files, if present, and delete them:
In your Windows folder: INETD.EXE

In your Windows\System folder:
KERN32.EXE
KERNEL32.EXE
KDLL.DLL
HKSDLL.DLL

Now go to Start/Run, and type Regedit.
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
Click 'RunOnce' once, in order to highlight it.
Now find the value 'Kernel32=kernel32.exe' in the right pane, highlight, and hit 'delete'.

And as Rog already said, please don't touch Kernel32.dll

Good luck,
