There are several malware programs that use that file name. To help identify and remove follow the directions below.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

You can also submit the file to Jotti to identify which malware it is.
