    Side-by-Side is a process to avoid what is called "Dll Hell". Programs
    make use of standardized, callable modules - Dynamic Link Libraries.
    These modules have different versions. In some cases one application
    would install a certain version dll module and another program might
    install a different one, overriding the 1st. Programs can be dependant
    on a particular version dll module to work correctly. Side-by-Side is
    a solution where programs can make use of the same name dll but
    use different versions of it and not impact other applications.

    In Windows XP the various Side-by-Side components are loaded at
    \Windows\WinSxS.

    Now you know it could be malware and how it is supposed to work.

    You don't know if it a problem or not or what to do about it

    Perform some scans for malicious software, then fix any remaining
    issues:

    Download, install, update and do a full scan with these free malware
    detection programs:

    Malwarebytes (MBAM): http://malwarebytes.org/
    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS): http://www.superantispyware.com/

    They can be uninstalled later if desired.

    When the scans run clean, reboot and see if you still have events
    relating to SxS and if you want help interpreting them, post some
    information about your system and the events of interest in the
    following manner:

    Click Start, Run and in the box enter:

    msinfo32

    Click OK, and when the System Summary info appears, click Edit, Select
    All, Copy and then paste back here.

    There will be some personal information (like System Name and User
    Name), and whatever appears to be private information to you, just
    delete from the pasted information.

    Here is a method to post the specific information about individual
    events.

    To see the Event Viewer logs, click Start, Settings, Control Panel,
    Administrative Tools, Event Viewer.

    A shortcut to Event Viewer is to click Start, Run and in the box
    enter:

    %SystemRoot%\system32\eventvwr.msc

    Click OK to launch the Event Viewer.

    The most interesting logs are usually the Application and System.
    Some logs may be almost or completely empty.
    Not every event is a problem, some are informational messages that
    things are working okay and some are warnings.
    No event should defy reasonable explanation.

    Each event is sorted by Date and Time. Errors will have red Xs,
    Warnings will have yellow !s. Information messages have white is.
    Not every Error or Warning event means there is a serious issue. Some
    are excusable at startup time when Windows is booting. Try to find
    just the events at the date and time around your problem.

    If you double click an event, it will open a Properties windows with
    more information. On the right are black up and down arrow buttons to
    scroll through the open events. The third button that looks like two
    pages on top of each other is used to copy the event details to your
    Windows clipboard.

    When you find an interesting event that occurred around the time of
    your issue, click the third button under the up and down arrows to
    copy the details and then you can paste the details (right click,
    Paste or CTRL-V) the detail text back here for analysis.

    To get a fresh start on any Event Viewer log, you can choose to clear
    the log (backing up the log is offered), then reproduce your issue,
    then look at just the events around the time of your issue.

    You might have Adobe products on your system missing VC80.crt file or
    something similar.

    Try this link about all possible errors:

    I merely searched for SidebySide on Google. It could be a legit program
    or malware.
