Windows 7: Fvzilla.exe ?? What's the mystery behind it ?

Fvzilla.exe ?? What's the mystery behind it ?

long story short, while running CC Cleaner today, I just wanted to look up at the Start Up programs in it & I found fvzilla.exe in there, first I assumed it was another software which I use - filezilla.exe but it wasn't & I read it perfectly fine.

Ok, I wanted to see what was this script & the location it was showing was:

d:\program files\Free Video Zilla\fvzilla.exe

the bigger issue is .. I can't see any folder called Free Video Zilla, even after enabling to show hidden files & folders.

When I did a quick search in google, one site says if there's an error, it needs to be fixed while another site says its a malicious script & needs to be removed.

What's the real truth & do I need to remove this from startup ?

None of the scans have thrown any kindda warnings or error msgs so far.
