my computer began having troubles starting "hotmail.com" in explorer and i can not delete some programs. I search the program folder and i found some suspicious files like "do not delete.exe", "backup.exe", "list.exe", "workbook.exe","unknown artist.exe". when i tried installing AVG , it shut down and created these files again in the source disk. Is this a new virus? what is the solution?????????

list.exe (irc.aimwin trojan) - Details
If you find a program called list.exe on your pc, your pc has potentially been infected with a trojan known as 'irc.aimwin'.
list.exe is considered to be a security risk, not only because antivirus programs flag irc.aimwin trojan as a trojan, but also because other sites consider it a Trojan as well.
irc.aimwin trojan is likely a Trojan and as such, presents a serious vulnerability which should be fixed immediately! Delaying the removal of list.exe may cause serious harm to your system and will likely cause a number of problems, loss of data, loss of control or leaking private information.

Beneath wings of darkness, wings of death, I dwell in shadows,
Here I have found a kingdom, here I have found a princess; the princess of darkness.
She's the only one I fear, my princess wrapped in shadows, my princess beloved.

Start your own topic in this forum with a brief description of the problems you are having


To edong
Please run this scan

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.
I'm not at my computer at the moment to provide links. Be patient someone will be along to help you
