Last Java New Question- deployJava1.dll

ok I had uninstalled Java 6 Update 23 just to check something

So at this point I do not have Java on my system

However, when I go to

C:\Windows\System 32

I still see this item

 deployJava1.dll

Now I do not have Java installed as verified by the Java text page

There is no java in C:\Programs

There is no java in programs when I check via the Start>Control Panel>Programs> Programs and Features

I googled deployJava1.dll and some of the things that show up in google, give the impression that it is malware and possibly a rootkit

But when I check the file I have it is:

 Signed by Sun Microsystems

Shows  version as 6.0.230.5

Has a created date of 4/17/10 and a modified date that coinicides when I DID install Java 6 Update 23

so

1. Is this a malicous file?

2. why this file is still on my machine, even after I uninstalled java 6 Update 23?

    (is it one of thos eleft over pieces/quirks things?)

****I will not be deleting it unless instructed by trusted sources to do so
