Leider nichts außer dass meine Virenproggi zu ständig findet und das in einem Programm welches ich nicht installiert, autorisiert habe. Es scheint zu irgend einer Form von Messenger zu gehören.

Absoluter Schwachsinn und ohne Abgesicherten Modus nicht zu deinstallieren!
iminen4ie.exe is the name of the main malware file and should be stored in a virus chest until the rest of iminent has been removed (including any other software that it downloaded,if this was downloaded from bubble dock or savings wizard, or mobigenie delete them right now)
