I recently ran the new Trend Micro Online scan at : http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
It found no viruses, but there were a few odd findings in an .HTML file I found in my Temp folder after this scan:
One of these readings is:
C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS\WIN_16.CAB *icwscrpt.exe* File Fail to scan file (-82,The Compressed file is corrupted)
Other than this message, I don't recall any issue with that WIN_16.CAB file .
The icwscrpt.exe is found in Windows\System. The latest entry in my sfplog.txt [System File Protection] concerning this file reads:
NORMAL : [11/20/2003 00:51:06:760] SFP restored file C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\icwscrpt.exe to version 126.96.36.1993
This is in fact the version number I see for that file in Windows\System. Might that SFP restoration have led to that message about that file within WIN_16.CAB as being "corrupted"?
Scanning of both that .cab file and the icwscrpt.exe by NAV shows no threats.
1) How can I determine if either that WIN_16.CAB or the icwscrpt.exe it lists as part of that is in fact "corrupt"?
Are there simple programs that could check for this?
2) Need I do anything about it? If so, what?
I no longer have the installation disk for windows ME.
Thanks in advance:
