I had the same problem. I have deleted the file now , but my system runs slow. I am no expert with this but I was advised to run msconfig and change the way the pc starts up. I was then able to delete the file. As i said, the pc now runs slow. I would love some advice on this one too. I had exactly the same problem. The file path was the same. My antivirus also referred to it as a Sinteri trojan.

Win32.Sinteri.E is a downloading trojan that modifies the registry and can be instructed to perform tasks on an infected system. It is also known as Trojan.Abwiz (Symantec), Win32/Sinteri.E!Trojan, Trojan-Proxy.Win32.Lager.i (Kaspersky)

You did not say how you removed this file. In adddition to David's instructions, to be safe, I also recommend that you download and run Symantec's removal tool available here.
Be sure to run the tool in Safe Mode.
