MPSIGSTUB - Malware??

I am running W XP SP 2.

I have twice found an unknown directory on my H drive - a very lengthy meaningless name, jumbled alpha/numeric. The only file in it is an executable, MPSIGSTUB.EXE. I am unable to delete it - it is in use.

I restart the computer and the directory and contents disappear.

Anybody know what this file is, where I get it, and should I worry???
