what does BIN mean after a program details?

Probably a binary file click here

Is this something that you downloaded?

BIN files are also CD image files. They can be burnt with nero. My two cents. but if its a program file, probably a binary file or something.

What is the BIN file called & where is it situated? e.g., provide full path C:\Windows\...

Maybe someone will be able to tell you exactly which program(s) created it & (if you're itching to know) whether you can safely delete it/them or not.

bin file extensions are also used for the transmission of viruses.

If the file came in an email and you are not certain of its provenance, be very careful!
