main.exe is a file coming from a tor hidden service. By my observations and headbanging for 2 days i found a site for bit coins(http://eligius.st/wiki/index.php/FAQ#Help.21_I.27m_infected_with_a_virus_using_your_service.21) that is arrogantly spreading software, which is using other PCs resources. On my PC it was using about 700mb of memory. Went into the registry found the service BITS (background intelligent transfer service) it is a windows service but i didn't like it anyway. And the creation of main.exe stopped and with it the background usage of my resources.
