On 'My Documents', I noticed that I have a file called Rest2514 which I do not remember how or where it came from. On clicking Properties', I get Description; WinSFX32 self extractor for win32', 4KB. What does this meann or do? Is this part of Win XP pro?

Restore files which are deleted by mistake from the recycle bin or deleted while holding down the Shift key. You don't have to install REST2514 so it doesn't leave any garbage in your PC, you can also run it from a floppy disk. Conversely, this program has another function that makes it almost impossible to restore all deleted files! You can use it after deletion of confidential documents, embarrassing files and so on. Use this program with caution please!

OIC.....Shall I just ignore it. I now remember that I used such a file to get back a very important file which I inadvertently deleted and cleared from the Bin.
