It sounds like it might be the remnants of another virtual machine that
you're no longer using...
1) Close down all virtual machines.
2) In the VPC console, inspect each virtual machine's configuration and see
which one is pointing to this hard disk.
3) If none of your virtual machines is using this hard disk, rename it and
then start up each of your virtual machines one by one. If they all start up
and run OK, you can safely delete the file.
4) If one of your virtual machines is using this hard disk, then you will
need to decide whether you still need that virtual machine or not...

Just a reminder that VPC 2007 isn't officially supported by Microsoft on
Vista Home editions, though it does work...
