I have had this false positive come up if http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html is installed. I dont doubt that there are viruses that use this filename though so I would be check that the file is what you expected.

If you didn't install or don't recognize that program then delete it or scan the system with antivirus or anti-spyware scanners.

Have you rightclicked on that file and what does it say in its properties? If it's not a legit program then remove it.

Scan with Hijackthis and show us the log.
