My Vista computer have this command line window that appears with the message 'Uruchamianie nowego gadu-gadu' , and it seems that it is from 'winmsc.exe'

I have recently used 'CCleaner' and 'AusLogics Disk Defrag', and also used msconfig to make the computer boot with 2 processors. I was wondering if any of the above was the cause of the message appearing.

My computer is vista home premium 32-bit, service pack 1, intel core2 duo T7250@2.00GHz, memory 3GB.

Maybe you can't rename (because it's being accessed). And maybe you need to boot into Safe Mode to rename.

Any other name (that doesn't yet exist in that folder) is OK. Two suggestions:
winmsc.exe.tst
winston_churchill.mp3

Probably there's no impact. That's what we're trying to find out. The worst that can happen (but it's VERY unlikely) will be that you have to use the recovery console to rename the file back.
