My question is about why does "Adobe Setup" shows up on my add/remove program and that it has no other information. I was wondering if it is alright to delete it and how would you delete it? Here is a picture of it:

The following is an excerpt from this article.

Installing software programs is rarely a one-step process. A single program may have many components that must be installed sequentially. Setup.exe is an executable application that operates by tracking and activating each component of a program as it is installed, relying on small portions of code or .dll's (Dynamic Link Libraries) to accomplish this task.


The file size is only 3.05MB and can be useful, I'd just leave it where it is.

When I did a search for information on the setup.exe I found enough references to it being in the add or remove programs that it seems to be fairly common.
