No, do a virus scan before you delete to see what it was. Either a virus,spyware, or maybe it was nothing

the file name begins with MS, so it is pretending to be a Windows .exe but isn't. Microsoft always puts their name in 'publisher:'

Yeah I kinda figured that one out. but at least find out what virus it is, and what it does. He might have entries in his registry that the virus made, and it could of infected other files.

DO NOT DELETE THE FILE, UNTIL YOU KNOW WHAT VIRUS IT IS AND WHAT IT DOES!

scan the whole folder if what apokolipse said is right then its a virus so scan it with ur scanner and delete it.
also... i said that kus the great google didn't find ur file! so i highly doubt its ne thing to do with microsoft...

i found something actually near your file name.. if u typed it in wrong then it could be a worm... :/ look in ur registry for these entries
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run Services
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
