Remove heartbalm.exe, it's Malware.

I think that burn four is related to software, so i would keep it.

it's not a folder, it's a reg key
located in registry, go to START, click on RUN, type 'regedt32' in the run box, and press [enter]
then navigate to that key in the HKEY/LOCAL MACHINE... branch
BE VERY CAREFUL OF WHAT YOU DO IN THE REGISTRY
