To be sure, you can reload the OS. It is the only sure way to fix malware. I can't say if this is or not.

Try to delete it in safe mode maybe, or send to recycle bin for sure.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

We would need the full name of the file, its folder location to determine if you have a issue.

Is there a reason you find this file name alarming?

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

There is a 'tracing' folder, under Documents and settings, - I believe it holds a troubleshooting log for Messenger & possibly other programs, hence probably not being on all machines, but it is a legitimate folder, though with a silly name.
