Windows 7: What is this in my (C:) Drive?

What is this in my (C:) Drive?

I'm not the most experienced on Windows or have the best memory, but I don't remember seeing this in my C Drive before. This is on my 2 day old HP notebook. I know it's nothing bad, but it just seems very unusual to me. I really just want to know where it came from or if it was always there. Thanks.

The first one are system files, the second is some application that I could not id. Looks benign.

I like the theme...which one is it? As for the folder, that's usually a leftover folder from a Windows Update. If you've rebooted since you've last installed udpates, it is safe to delete...assuming it doesn't get deleted by the system. it looks like some kind of display driver or monitor driver that was probably brought down by Windows Update.

Thanks, I will delete it then. As for the theme, it is called Placebo 2.0 for Windows 7 by ~SolMiler on deviantART

Sorry, I should have been a little more specific about the screenshots I posted. Glad to know my memory isn't as bad as I thought though.
