Looks like spyware to me unless you manually gave the installer that name... check msconfig to see if it's listed anywhere

I'm also guessing that you'll have to run your spyware killers to be able to delete it...
If you don't want crime to pay, let the government run it.

You can also bring up Windows Explorer (or My Computer), go to the Desktop folder and see if it will allow you to drag it to maybe your Temp folder ...

Safe mode will definitely work but make sure you know which Desktop folder (directory) it's in and the path to it ...
