Skywalker.exe ??

I just found Skywalker.exe on my system. I have Googled it but none of it makes sense.
It's dated 6/17/2012. I really don't know what it is or how I got it.
I have scanned it for security problems and none were found.
What is it for or from?

I would locate the file and delete it. I googled it too and I can't find anything either.

Aaaand this link does claim that it's a virus, hmm.

Not sure if there's a difference between skywalker.exe and lula skywalker.exe tho.

When in doubt, upload it to Virus Total and have it analyze, it may uncover something more.
Where in the system is it?

There is NO SUCH FILE under either the Windows or System32 directories in Vista, W7, or Windows 8.

C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\SkywalkerSetup[1].exe

This is what I have. I have used Ccleaner, Disk Clean Extended, and Adwcleaner and it's still there.
It's not in the registry. Checking farther (this does not have a valid program)
I have scanned it with Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes Anti Malware, okay.
I'm just going to remove it and see what happens.

Many thanks for the work and help you all have given.
