    nope, it's a system file. but, if you have a virus, it may be infected. go to and donwload avg free edition virus scan program, and spybot s&d by activeweb, and adaware for full protection. you'll get really good protection out of all three programs, and once you've downloaded them, check for updates on each one, and run each one twice. then, do a disk clean up on your system, then defrag, and restart your pc. trust me, this is all worth it.

    good luck!!!
