Windows 7: Delete "Flo" folder in my C: drive?

Delete "Flo" folder in my C: drive?

So I was wondering if I can delete the "Flo" folder in my C: drive. I don't know when it appeared, I can't find anything on the topic of it on the web. I'll post attachments with the pictures of files inside. It seems like a virus of some kind and it's actually really possible that it's a virus. I had a virus flood when I tried to download music :d. Antivirus doesn't detect it though. I'm too scared to run the .exe file in the .zip folder just in case it is indeed a virus, but don't want to delete in case it's important. Simply answer with "Delete", "Leave", and possibly explain what is it for. Thanks in advance!
