CHKLIST.MS is left over from running the MS viruscan program.  These are signature files (checksums) of the files in the directory.  They are harmless, but they are also useless.

The MS Antivurus software is far out of date an offers NO REAL PROTECTION from virus attack.  I strongly recommend using an up to date antivirus program. (Eval of Mcafee AV from www.mcafee.com)

You can delete all of the easily from windows, useing either File manager (Win31) or Explorer (Win95).  Use the search function for all the files names CHKLIST.MS and then mark and delte them.
