Title: Wanted: Files scanned with error 42003 - "Internal Program Error"
Post by: Vlk on September 22, 2003, 12:24:53 AM
Hi all,
I'd like to start a great hunt for files that avast! refuses to scan with the "Internal Program Error" error code. If you have any such file(s), please be so kind and send 'em to my e-mail address. :)

Note: turning on archive scanning can somewhat increase the chance of encountering such a file.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Vlk

Ohh, don't I have anything to do than fixing archive bugs ;) ? I believe in raman, who could be a favourite.

Sorry Vlk, avast! even scanning througout my files does not give any "internal" error  ;D
The false positive files I have already send to pk in the past  ;D

Well, I guess Vlk didn't want to say that we cannot be happy unless we get at least a hundred of such files each month  ;D
But if anybody finds such a file, we would definitelly like to have it, that's it.

If you encounter this "Internal Program Error", it means that avast! has some bad problems with the file. So, it would be nice to send as the file, so that we can fix the error.

Hi Vlk, this message serves you right for asking questions ;D

I haven't got all of my 'application' software fully loaded, but I just did a test and ran a full scan (Thorough + Archive) 53Gb without an error message in sight ;D, even some 5-8Gb backup files that had given me trouble in the past were ok.

Still you ask questions like this and some idiot (me)  :P is bound to find something!. So... is there a 'coffee making' facility in the latest version?  ???

This is probably only happening on my machine  :-[ (anyone else???) and I'm not worried... yet!, but when the scanner is running, my monitor speakers are making a noise similar to a duck with diarhea being squeezed in the middle!. For those that have never tried this (you haven't lived!  8) ), it also sounds like a coffee pot syphoning.

Now Someone has to test this  :) :) :)
Title: Re:Wanted: Files scanned with error 42003 - "Internal Program Error"
Post by: Vlk on September 22, 2003, 04:20:50 PM
Well, the 'internal program error' pops up whenever there is an unexpected error while scanning a file (fortunately not really often any more). You can be glad that the scan runs smoothly on your machine.

This error code is very often related to a bug in the unpacker engine (and since we don't really program the unpackers, we just assemble and fix the stuff that's available on the Net, there can be some bad bugs [unlike in the core avast! engine itself, you know... 8) 8)])

Yikes! Now what?  :P

I tryed to send you 3 files right now but they are too big for a dial-up connection (more than 4Mb)  :'(.
You could download the EBCD Pro 0.5 and test 2 files: boot.gz and bootd.gz (http://wcarchive.cdrom.com/pub/simtelnet/msdos/sysutl/ebcdpro.zip).
Another one is WACHBJRB.zip that is installed by the application RealOnePlayer (http://get.real.com/RBR4/200.177.252.66/25fda47d8d024fd0fc20/windows/RealOnePlayerV2GOLD_br.exe).

Could you say something about?  ;)

Post by: pk on September 29, 2003, 03:52:20 PM

Sure, both links are down, you sent me the private message and you wrote me the alternative downloadable locations. EBCD Pro 0.6 doesnt have any problems with .gz files (i know you were talking about v0.5, see below).

I've installed RealOnePlayer in Portuguese language and there's no .zip files which would be installed with the product.

I tryed to send you 3 files right now but they are too big for a dial-up connection (more than 4Mb)  :'(.

If you can split the 4Mb+ file and send it to kurtin@asw.cz it would be great - or i can open my ftp for your uploading.

Post by: igor on September 29, 2003, 04:33:58 PM
A search on Google reveals EBCD Pro 0.5 :)
I got it, but can't see any bootd.gz file inside (only bootc).
Both the files boot.gz and bootc.gz are scanned without any "Internal program error"; however, it seems their content is not scanned....

Sorry, Peter. This seems to be the correct links...
I have downloaded a lot of time ago... Maybe the Real One in Portuguese: http://www.real.com/R/RDX.fail-click.R/207.188.7.150/295f252ce5b9626a8b05/windows/RealOnePlayerV2GOLD_br.exe or by the homepage http://www.real.com (version Free).

And the EBCD Pro from the link
http://www.simtel.net/product.download.mirrors.php?id=61113

Dekuji.

I will try to split the files and send you.
I´ll be very happy trying to use my upload option. Could you open your ftp for uploading? Maybe you can send me the instructions by IM. I can try one of these ways...  ;D

Post by: pk on October 01, 2003, 01:40:52 AM
Technical, I've checked EBCD v0.5 and .gz archive is scanned, look at the results:

extracted to memory:
C:\zz\Debug\...\ebcdpro.zip\ebcdpro\CDROM-PRO\BOOT\boot.gz\boot -  is OK
C:\zz\Debug\...\ebcdpro.zip\ebcdpro\CDROM-PRO\BOOT\boot.gz  -  is OK

extracted directly to disc:
C:\zz\Debug\...\ebcdpro.zip\ebcdpro\CDROM-PRO\BOOT\boot.gz\unp30512 -  is OK
C:\zz\Debug\...\ebcdpro.zip\ebcdpro\CDROM-PRO\BOOT\boot.gz -  is OK

Igor wrote, the content is not scanned. The .gz archive has the only one image file which was really scanned.

I've installed .br version of RealOnePlayer but I didn't find any WACHBJRB.zip file in the installation folder. I've sent you my ftp connection details, you can send me the file.

Well, I think my latest avast4 version means something else for pk and technical. As pk is the member of the core team he (of course) has full access to the latest (internal) builds. That may explain the discrepancy in your results, genlemen.

Technical, please try to rescan the file with the version released today - 4.1.278.

Thanks.  ;)

do you mean the following results ?

\I-Worm.Sircam.exe\I-Worm.Sircam.exe [L] Win32:Sircam-B (0)
\I-Worm.Sircam.exe [L] Win32:Sircam-C [Wrm] (0)


The file is unpacked correctly, but it seems, the signature for either W32:Sircam-C or [W]W32:Sircam-B[/b] is not chosen suitably.

I've forwarded it to the right person and I hope it will be fixed soon (just from the first quick glance to the log file it must be funny ;)).

This is probably only happening on my machine  :-[ (anyone else???) and I'm not worried... yet!, but when the scanner is running, my monitor speakers are making a noise similar to a duck with diarhea being squeezed in the middle!. For those that have never tried this (you haven't lived!  8) ), it also sounds like a coffee pot syphoning.
You may try to reduce your Acceleration setting in the Settings menu of Avast, or simply turn down the Volume.
This is usually caused by internal feedback.
You can also turn off the AVAST sounds entirely if you like peace and quiet.

I have not had or heard of this before, but was able to reproduce a similar annoying sound by booting the volume with Acceleration on the highest setting.

 ;D

Either that or shoot the duck!

I got some files, which had that similar error, from minacross (and not only he) - but after rescanning I didnt find anything wrong (and vlk as well) - it may be causes by other error during the scanning which could appear on that file (otherwise, how could you explain you have enough mem & hdd space but you always get error num 8 even if the file is extracted to hdd or mem).

Hi all,
I'd like to start a great hunt for files that avast! refuses to scan with the "Internal Program Error" error code. If you have any such file(s), please be so kind and send 'em to my e-mail address. :)

Note: turning on archive scanning can somewhat increase the chance of encountering such a file.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Ok, this is crazy.  The original scan log showed this error.  I couldn't find the log saved on the hard drive, so I had to re-run the scan to determine what files caused the error.

The second run went without a hitch.  ???

So, I'll keep an eye on it and if it shows up again, I'll send samples.

Although, the report is in Portuguese, could you tell me if any of the files insteres to you?
I'm using 4.1.319 and VPS 0312-2.
The report is from Enhanced User Interface, Scan Local Disks tasks, with all packers selected for scanning. I'm surprised the results are not the same as from Simple User Interface, although, I always heard and read that the engine are the same, the VPS are the same, the packers I think they are not always the same.
 
Happy New Year.
Technical.
 
P.S. To send some files to you I need the ftp of pk open for me again :-)

Thanks Technical for your scanning report.
I'm interested in this file:
C:\...\Real\RealOne Player\MSearch\branding.dat\oem.ini [E] Erro interno do programa. (42003)

Some days ago I've uninstalled portuguese RealPlayer so I don't have that file.

and e.g. in these ones:
C:\...\AutoIt\Aut2Exe\Exe2Aut.exe\[UPX] [E] O arquivo UPX está corrompido. (42132)
C:\...\AutoIt\Examples\AutoIt.exe\[UPX] [E] O arquivo UPX está corrompido. (42132)

My ftp is opened for you and will welcome your files, thanks !

I got the file:
C:\WINDOWS\java\Packages\WACHBJRB.ZIP\version.txt [E] Erro interno do programa. (42003)

and I will inform you where the problem was.

We had three or four big problems with the current version of ASPack so I had to rewrite the whole unaspack (Linux support has been added, etc). Since I'm finishing sth else in avast, I'll include it to engine later.

C:\...\AutoIt\Examples\AutoIt.exe\[UPX] [E] O arquivo UPX está corrompido. (42132)

I do not transfer C:\WINDOWS\java\Packages\WACHBJRB.ZIP\version.txt [E] Erro interno do programa. (42003) as you said you have this file.

If you need anything else, just let me know.

Vlk is asking for files as example, but in my experience it does not depend on the file: if I scan a file again avast! terminates "normally", that is, without any signal at all, which I think is not user-friendly. It would be better if avast! would report "n files scanned, nothing to report" or such.
I run avast! on Win98, my browser is Netscape and ZoneAlarm is also running

Ah, you mean the Explorer Extension.
Go to the program Settings and check the bottom of the page "Common" - you can configure the behavior of the Explorer Extension there.

Hi all,
I'd like to start a great hunt for files that avast! refuses to scan with the "Internal Program Error" error code. If you have any such file(s), please be so kind and send 'em to my e-mail address. :)

Note: turning on archive scanning can somewhat increase the chance of encountering such a file.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,
Vlk


Well I can't say that I have any that produce that error but I have a file that when avast hits it avast goes bonkers on the A drive then locks up the system,

Post by: Vlk on February 28, 2004, 09:12:44 AM
How large is the file? Can you send it to me by email? Or can you put it somewhere so I could download it?

Does the problem happen even if you disable archive scanning?

Thanks
Vlk

I'm not able to simulate the problem... can you tell me something more about the case, please?

- what is your OS?
- how did you run the scan? (Simple/Enhanced User Interface, what task settings...)
- does the problem happen again when you repeat the scan?
- when you copy the files into some other folder and run the scan again, does the "internal error" happen again?

Win XP SP1

I ran a scheduled scan the settings for the scan are:
(I don't see any other special settings that I should mention.)

I attach the report file.
If I right click on the folder and scan it with the on-demand scanner, I do not get any errors.

Just a note that the scheduled scanner tonight indicated the above errors on the same files again. However, I can not reproduce this if I scan the files by demand.

I don't know if it may cause any difference - but when the scheduled scan was performed, were you logged on or off?
Title: Re:Wanted: Files scanned with error 42003 - "Internal Program Error"

Could the screensaver make a difference? Obviously when I do on demand scanning the screensaver is off, when it is scheduled it is on.

I have scanned several times with avast!4 and have not gotten the error 42003.  8)

Just as a side note to other comments, I'm using W98SE with 640 megs of ram. My computer shuts down faster with avast!4 than it did the last anti-virus program I had ... McAfee ... what a resource hog!

Now, when someone asks me about anti-virus programs, I recommend avast! always. Great work on this to all involved!  ;D

My avast just crashed with this error and caused a GP fault. How do I find out which file caused it?
Title: Re:Wanted: Files scanned with error 42003 - "Internal Program Error"
Post by: igor on July 28, 2004, 07:30:33 PM
Do you have the exact content of the GPF error window?
Is the problem repeatable? You can turn on the creation of the report file in the program settings, and select the "OK files" to be included in the report file. The report will get rather big, but when it crashes, the "bad" file is likely to be located near the end of the file (or rather, a little "after" the end - but you can probably guess what it could be).

What avast! version do you have? (Home or Pro? what build?)

Anyway, can you describe how exactly the error appeared? First, the "Internet program error" appeared in results and then it crashed, or...?

Walker ,
              I don't know your brand of computer but 1 of my computers is and " Sony VAIO " and they experienced the same speaker noise feedback problem on their systems . They also provided a patch fix in an effort to correct this .
             Perhaps ( possible ) the problem is not in Avast ( necessarily ) but more so in your computer in need of a patch from the manufaturer ?
             Just a thought so don't be quick  :o


Hi Vlk, this message serves you right for asking questions ;D

I haven't got all of my 'application' software fully loaded, but I just did a test and ran a full scan (Thorough + Archive) 53Gb without an error message in sight ;D, even some 5-8Gb backup files that had given me trouble in the past were ok.

Still you ask questions like this and some idiot (me)  :P is bound to find something!. So... is there a 'coffee making' facility in the latest version?  ???

This is probably only happening on my machine  :-[ (anyone else???) and I'm not worried... yet!, but when the scanner is running, my monitor speakers are making a noise similar to a duck with diarhea being squeezed in the middle!. For those that have never tried this (you haven't lived!  8) ), it also sounds like a coffee pot syphoning.

Now Someone has to test this  :) :) :)

Hi,

i'm just encountering this error at a boottime scan on a highly infected PC.
The full error is:

File c:\windows\system32\EqnClass.Dll Error 42003
File c:\windows\system32\mlang.dll Error 42003

and a few others - but they scrolled out of sight already.

On my laptop and my second PC i never encountered this error.

The problematic system is a P4 - 1800 (SDRAM) with Windows XP Home (all patches but SP2). Thorough scan + archives with newest avast! home and newest virus files.

Hopefully this can help you. If you still want the files drop me an email. (didn't read the whole thread because i wanted to type the error right off my monitor.)

Well error code 42003 (Internal Program Error) sure wouldn't be returned if the files were simply not readable (at least I hope so).

BTW which CRC do you mean? Low-level HDD CRC?

I can't remember the path it listed but it was something likeG:/system volume information/-restore/lots of numbers?
I searched for this folder on G and couldn't find it.
I chose repair, but nothing seemed to happen except the alert box disappeared.

I then decided to check the drive and ended up with a massive list of Internal program error. (42003). Hundreds of files listed, all with errors? Too many to sent or list here. See attachment of log

What next?

So... Am I right that a scan of any file on the G: drive yields the 42003 error then?

No, it's not all the files. I'm running checkdisk right now on that drive, but there are thousands of files on it. From the log it seems that all but one of the errors are in one folder. All the .jpgs in that folder scanned OK but not the .doc files for example! My captured video and Windows backup files scanned OK.

Why not stop system restore which will clean out all the files in that folder. After a reboot, you can always enable system restore again.

I've located G:\system volume information\ _restore\

Initially it denied me access and said it was empty. I gained access by altering security settings, and its now 2.26 Gb.  Scanned it and it was fine!

Bye the way this folder supposed to be there, or have I copied it here by accident? Sorry to be off topic.

Vik

Check-disk finished, and did a reboot.
I've just rescanned the problem folder. 6549 files, no viruses, and no error messages!!!!!

All seems fine now. Thanks.

Forget my off topic questions re the system restore points on my G: drive. I didn't realise it was automatically switched on, on all drives. I've sorted it now. :)

There will be one for each different partition/drive, to all intents and purposes if you need System Restore at all.

I use Drive Image as my restore options, there are other options, I would say that you only really need it on the windows partition/drive.

You will save huge chunks of drive space if you disable it for drive G:

SYSTEM RESTORE - Info - Troubleshooting
There are many, many reasons why a System Restore may fail. For example, see "Why are previous restore points not working?" in the "Troubleshooting" section of this official Microsoft page:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/winxppro/plan/faqsrwxp.mspx

There's lots more on that page that's worth reading too. Note especially the sections on "Does System Restore protect personal data files?" (the short answer: no); "What should I do if System Restore does not work?"; "Why are my restore points missing or deleted?"; "Why does the System Restore Wizard lockup?"; and so on. Just a few minutes on that page ought to convince just about anyone that System Restore is not intended for heavy-duty system protection!

Thanks for the links. I'll have a read. :)
I am aware there are issues with it, but so far it has come in helpful on many occasions. I do backup all my data regularly as well.
Cheers

Can anybody from Alwil take a look into http://www.v1ru5help.org/smf/index.php?topic=93.0;topicseen ?

An anonymous researcher has reported through several sources that anti-virus products from six vendors fail to detect malware when it is contained in a corrupted Zip file.

The modification to the Zip file prevents the anti-virus programs from detecting files in it, but it doesn't prevent users from accessing those files, according to an advisory from Internet security research firm iDefense. The vulnerable products are from McAfee Inc., Computer Associates International Inc., Kaspersky Labs, Sophos plc., Eset Software and RAV, according to the advisory.

The problem has to do with the products' handling of an error condition in Zip files, which store information about compressed files stored within them in two locations. There is a local header preceding each file in the archive and a global header at the end of the archive. When the uncompressed size of the file within both archives is set to zero, the affected programs fail to detect malware in the files.


Here is the entire article link (http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1679530,00.asp).

Thanks...

As mentioned in another thread, last night I had over 350 files come up with this error. Should I send some of them to you guys or something? This was in spite of a recent scandisk on one of the affected hard drives.

mixer.exe is a part of the drivers for the C-Media onboard sound systems. It provides the user with a replacement for the default Windows Volume Mixer.

mciavi.drv is the AVI video driver.

Hello guys,

I have avast4,5 home addition on my PC and it works perfectly (winXPpro). Today I tried to install it on my father's PC with win2000pro. Installation was OK, but during first boot time scan I received alot of messages that some files (mostly MP3) was not scaned due to error 42003. Please help!

I believe the number is different - the files were probably not scanned "due to program settings". It just means that for the selected scan sensitivity (quick / standard), MP3 files are not scanned because they are not dangerous.

Hi,  New to board. This comes up with every scan.  I'm using Avast Home 4.5.  C:\Windows\$NtUninstallQ282010$\msrepL40.dll  error 42003....gets to this file and locks usually.  I scanned this morning and scan actually finished but still showed this same error.  This was after I uninstalled Avast and redownloaded due to freeze when trying to open the error icon.  It would lock.  The other buttons worked just not the error. Works now. I don't know what to do to fix this error 42003.  I did have Win32:magistr in prior scans (not this last one) and did some fixes and hopefully I got rid of it ;)  Problems also with C:\Windows\MF_C421.lfa, 420 and 425. Not sure if I saw the 42003 but somethings not right. Can't even touch any of these files without a complete lock up and a manual boot.

1. try the new avast version (4.6) - does that make any difference?
2. are you saying that if you try to access any of the files e.g. in Explorer (or Notepad or whatever), your system freezes? :o

Vlk, is it necessary that this thread remains as a 'stick' one? I always see it at the top of the forum but reading the first page it seems that the archive scanning was already improved/solved, etc.
Well, just my 0.02  8)

Hey VLK,

For the novice - does that include files with the error code "Error occured during file deletion"  I just did my very first scan with the home edition and I had 44 lines of the "error on deletion" and therefore, the files are still floating around my computer.

If anyone else could offer assistance, I would be grateful.
