What did you download? If Avast! Free A-V then you may get frequent messages of blocking of malicious URLs, particularly if you frequent Warez, Porn and other dubious Sites. In the fullness of time these messages shall taper off to almost zero.
Google search reveals that Smtmp is the file extension used for folders that are created by the rogue Antispyware Software FakeHDD which offer the user help but actually infect the computer. I came to know of this extension for the first time today after reading your message.
I don't know to what extent your system is compromised by all the rogues that you have downloaded and installed. My suggestion to you would be to reformat your hard disk(s) and reinstall your OS all over again.
After that either protect yourself with Avast! Free A-V or MSE against viruses and malware and try to keep off the rogue sites. I don't know about MSE but if you install Avast it will fully help you in doing that.

and I looked on this other site [Solved] All programs missing from windows xp start menu - Windows-XP-General-Discussion - Windows-XP
and learned about smtmp, I found the folder and in folder 1 I found my programs but in folder 4 it is completely empty. I dont even have a folder 2... most of my saved files are apparently not completely there because it is slightly transparent.
can you help me out with this problem including the user files, startup icons? please and thanks so much!!
