I have been seeing this for some time and when I look at the suggested fix (download new version) isn't for Vista.

That file is a remnant from a Windows upgrade. You should be able to get rid of it with the Disk Cleanup utility. Use the All Users option and then look for something like 'Remove previous Windows versions'.

We have the same OS Vista, I have checked my computer and didn't find that program, I don't think it's necessary, you may clean it up.

I agree with ddmarshal, you should get rid of it by using the Disk Cleanup Utility or the CCleaner from Piriform. Its one of the best cleaner that i use. You may just have to download it from Piriform.com. Its free.

Hope this help.
