That file is not installed with Windows Millenium.

It may be a worm.

Have you tried an online virus scanner?

Flexology,
Looks like a Trojan Horse, also known as "Backdoor.GrayBird".    See link below for more details, particularly the section
on 'Technical Details':

Zee's recommendations will probably fix it.      If not, you may like to scan with GFI's online 'Trojan' scanner:
