Normally, If your antivirus found it it should put it in the virus vault you then have to re-start to finish removing the threat otherwise you have to re-install the program that installed the file Win32/AddLyrics then remove it in add/remove programs or manually go to the C:\windows\system32\win32\AddLyrics delete the file Win32\AddLyrics if it is not locked

When trying to install a game on my pc i get a error message (cannot install on WIN32s and NT machines) what does this mean

Why are there so many programs that don't run on Win32s? There are a number of reasons. To summarize:
The programmers must address Win32s specific problems; for example, good memory management is necessary to prevent resource leakage. That means extra work, of course. Additionally Win32s needs program and DLL sections that can be omitted in Win9x/NT. Another reason is that all the newer development tools do not support Win32s anymore (the last MS Win32 SDK that ships with Win32s is from 1996, for example), and today's compilers' defaults are usually incompatible to Win32s as well.
Now the details:
  • If a program uses Win9x specific functions of any kind, multi-threading, relies on fixed addresses (meaning that it lacks relocation tables) or simply uses Win32 functions that aren't implemented in Win32s, then it won't work. In case of lacking relocation tables Win32s simply doesn't understand the format of the executable (resulting in an "Invalid format" message).
  • The registry database is another problem, especially if the program's keys contain spaces (" ").
  • Console mode apps can run if they're well-written (e.g. have relocation tables etc.), but there are no output possibilities, which means that one can't see what the program is telling the user, including help texts, unfortunately. Additionally, they must be started from Windows; unlike in Win9x, starting them directly from a DOS box doesn't work. Examples of working console mode apps are the Win32 console mode version of the web server Xitami 2.4d7 and the image converter NConvert which comes with the Win9x/NT version of XNView (which BTW, is identical to the "Win 3.x" version, except for other language DLLs).

Something to do with skype setup not being win32

Well, what I can say is, make sure you save it to win32, but also make sure you have a headset for it. I believe you can save it to win32 by going to your "My Computer", then from there clicking on "Local Disc (C:)" and look for "win32" which is basically your system. So you may have to save to your system, try that.
