Script file showed up

I was looking in My Docs and saw a folder there I've never seen before called "Defaults". Inside this folder is another one called "Preferences", and inside this is a file called "messagefaces.js" JScript Script File 1KB. According to the menu it opens with M/Soft(r) Windows based Script Host. The folder itself was created in August 05, was modified March 22nd 06 and accessed March 23rd 06.

I have no idea where this folder came from and am alarmed as I know .js files can be associated with worms/viruses ( or is that .vbs files) Anyway, I really do need to know what it is and what to do with it.

This appears to be part of a Mozilla plug-in. Do you use Firefox or Thunderbird?

Hi Vog, I used to use Thunderbird - installed it end of January this year and uninstalled it about a month after. So is it safe to delete this folder do you think?

Yes, you can delete it.
