Looks like it's malware:

Possibly a variant of the 'Klez' virus:

Obviously try removing it with anti virus but I noticed the above link does contain a klez removal tool although it is some years old... Perhaps worth trying if all else fails?

Thanks, I've deleted the entire folder that had about 100 or so sub-folders with very small extension-less files within. The exe file itself had a dodgy looking icon, I'm wondering how it got in my computer. Strange how antivir and malwarebytes didn't recognize it as a threat. Also the websites above look useful. Cheers :)

It came back again, I had two websites open at the time, facebook and soundcloud, could it be dropped in via one of those?
Look it's icon!

Nothing like that, no. Malwarebytes got rid of it although I can simply delete the file. I need something to prevent it coming back. I'll give adcleaner a go. Cheers.
