Any idea what this file could be?

I keep having a file open on my desktop.I dont know what it is or where it came from.

I pops up asking to run a file called...0252388.exe.The details box says details,but when opened it shows no info.I cant locate anything on this file at Mcafee or in my search engines.

    click Start > Run and type: msconfig

    go to the Startup tab in msconfig, and uncheck the one for THAT filename to run. click OK.

    now download this:

    darkflux.net/shared/deleter0.8.exe

    i wrote this one. it deletes all TEMP and Temporary Internet junk files (even super-hidden ones). you can view the source code for it by right-clicking it and opening with WinRAR (which is how i made it).

    viruses like to hide in TEMP locations, so that is why i mentioned that...

    Kill it.

    Remove it with extreme prejudice.

    No process should have a name like that.

    That's malware if I ever saw it.

    It's probably a polymorph though.. so kill it in safe mode, as an admin using MBAM.

    **** it. If you don't know what it is or how it got there, delete. Probably trojan.
