Likely malware. The random lettered name and the location of it are very suspicious. I would disable the service at minimum, then do a malware scan with MalwareBytes (Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download)

Then a full virus scan with MSE or whatever you may have installed for AV software.

Even Google doesn't seem to know. Have you run a virus check on this file?

As the .exe file is located in \AppData\Local\Temp\ therefore the service can be stopped and the file can normally be quite safely deleted.

Yeah these days most malware and virii scramble their exe and dll names so they can't be looked up easily by AV software or by users on Google. Though that in itself is almost a 100% guarantee that it IS a "bad" file.
