What is this file for: Adobelm_cleanup.0001 ???

Under properties, I am told it is an unknown file.

I was going to "stop" it from running, but a system message came up saying if the system proceeded with shutting the file down, it could hurt my machine.

Yet the file was created last Thursday - not a day when i bought new hardware or software.

Checking under The Task maanger, it seems to be running quite a bit.

What does it do, and is it the reason my machine is running slow (Did a virus check yesterday - no viruses detected.)

Any help appreciated.
