this is a hoax, I received the similar message from the SAVS list, I
inquired of our Northwestern University IT folks, got the following response:
NO, this is NOT a virus. There is an email forward going around telling
people to delete this file, but it is a hoax. This file is actually very
important and you should not delete it. (Also, you should never touch
files in the WINDOWS folder, it contains files that run windows, and you
could end up causing serious problems to your computer).
Hopefully, you haven't deleted it yet. If you have, there is a website
that tells you how to recover the file. The address is
http://mac.sru.edu/t-n/helpdesk/teddybearhoax.htm. Follow the instructions
at the bottom. Also, please forward the website on to anyone else who
received the hoax email!

I sent this back to the person who had posted the original message to the
SAVS list and received the following from him:
Thanks. I had received my message from a colleague here (and computer
savy guy), so I assumed it was real. I found out later it was a hoax.
I've had the file replaced by our computer people. Sorry for all the
trouble, and thanks for the note.
I would suggest that you leave the file alone
