It's a bug introduced by a Windows update. It appears when an alteration has been made to the address book. It is harmless (apparently). Just right click and delete.

Its some rubbish left behind by Outlook Express 6. It can be deleted quite safely.

as -pops- and VoG say, it's the result of the usual tight, efficient, MS Software update writing.
