I see you also asked this question here.

Anytime you come across a suspicious file for which you cannot find any information about, the file has a legitimate name but is not located where it is supposed to be, or you want a second opinion, submit it to Jotti's virusscan or VirusTotal. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.

At least that will indicate if the file is harmful.

-- Note: If you cannot find the folder/file, you may have to Reconfigure Windows to show hidden files, folders.
