Ouch... That's probably not a good thing.
Maybe it's not for your computer?

Depending on the version, it's storing a copy on your computer; if it's
installed there. Not my place to say why it may be present on your
computer, but it's worth noting that previous versions basically did a
snapshot, so anything you do, is copied. Chat sessions, email, web surfing,
and no, you can't erase it from those programs easily.

If it's on that computer, and properly installed, under normal conditions,
you shouldn't notice it's presence.
