Hello and welcome,

Have ou tried to delete it from the folder by manually going to its location and clicking delete?
If the file refuses to budge, you can try the following programs they might shift it for you

Anytime you come across a suspicious file for which you cannot find any information about, you can submit it to jotti's virusscan or virustotal.com.
In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit [upload] it for scanning/analysis.
Then post back with the results of the file analysis.
