No you don't susan, it's conware, if your usual programs aren't flagging nothing up then you've nothing to worry about it. You could add ccleaner to your list from click here which will clean out your temp files, etc and sort out some null entries in the registry, it's perfectly safe and recommended by 100's if not thousands of forum members.
