It’s a program file which you can remove from the “Start Menu” by right-clicking it and clicking Unpin from Start Menu or Remove from This List

If the file appears again after you unpin or remove it from the “Start Menu” then it could be a malware program that you need to remove If this is the cause you should download and install Microsoft’s Windows AntiSpyware (Beta) which is free Before you download Windows AntiSpyware please check to make sure you system meets the requirements which you can check at the following website: After you confirm that your systems meets the requirements then download and install Microsoft AntiSpyware at: Next run a full scan of your computer and Windows AntiSpyware (Beta) displays detailed information about every spyware program detected, including a description of the threat, where it is located on your computer, a risk rating, and a recommended action to take This information enables you to make informed decisions regarding removal Detected spyware can be either temporarily disabled using Spyware Quarantine or permanently removed from your computer.

In addition you should run a full scan of your computer using your an anti virus program (I’m assuming you have an anti virus program).
