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

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:

It's possible the scan may be looking for an older file, or a slightly different one. Sometimes you can find the .cab files on the web for older windows version, or maybe borrow a disk.

Thanks Tyger.

I'm wondering if there might be some way of scanning the Windows files--either using online scanning or software--- to ascertain whether there is in fact any corruption in that .cab file?
