Are you sure that file came from Microsoft? I didn't think they used zip files. I assume you have an unzipper program installed?

According to this website that file is malware:
http://www.tongjimba.com/exeviruses/16401.html

How did you receive this file? I highly doubt that it came from Microsoft. Microsoft does not send out unsolicited hofixes. Sometimes email messages are made to appear they have come from Microsoft when they have not.

Unless you can confirm the file is legitimate you should delete it and do a full malware scan.

What was the hotfix(?) intended to fix? We need more info. I agree it sounds dubious.

Please come back and let us know the outcome.

I agree. Someone is trying to scam you. Microsoft do not send out hot-fixes by Email. You have to go to them, they do not come to you.
