In my system, it doesn't even exists. Most likely it's a virus. Look at msconfig if it autoruns at startup and if it's running currently in task manager. If so, delete it right now. Moreover, if after deletion it automagically appears again, it's time to get a good antivirus.

This is a Backdoor Trojan. You will need to change all of your passwords using a known 'clean' computer, do not do this using the infected one!
