    This program just randomly appeared on my computer. I did not download it, and now I have a short cut to it on my desk top. Not sure if its safe. I think my computer is running slower now

    "This program just randomly appeared on my computer.". Same here; probably came with one of these super-obfuscated installers of free software I sometimes get. As it installed itself covertly, it's by definition crapware (t/m) and to be distrusted and removed.
