the link above will download filemon.exe by sysinternals. it allows you to look at all activity on your file system. open it, run it, then filter it on c:\data. let it run in the background until you see something hit it.

after something hits it, the process that manipulated the directory, the file it touched, and the exact time should help you determine the intent of the file. it kind of looks like a dump of a failed program or failed program data in vbs format. do you and your friend have any third party software that is unique to the both of you? download a common game or application? and is his exactly the same or a little different?

if it is a file dump, then you probably wont see much happening to it.

also, make sure your box is patched, make sure anti-virus is up to date, run a firewall if you dont already. also check your run key to see if there is anything weird in there.
