query about the results of a scan
« on: March 20, 2005, 09:22:44 PM »
I have a query about the results of a scan. The following files where unable to be scanned and I don’t know what to do. Should I  worry or not?

C:\_RESTORE\ARCHIVE\FS467.CAB\A0042860.CPY\91070.bk  Unable to scan Cab file is corrupted

C:\_RESTORE\ARCHIVE\FS473.CAB\A0043049.CPY\98017.bk  Unable to scan Cab file is corrupted

C:\_RESTORE\ARCHIVE\FS476.CAB\A0044122.CPY\25594.bk  Unable to scan Cab file is corrupted

C:\_RESTORE\ARCHIVE\FS527.CAB\A0051399.CPY\67261.b  Unable to scan Cab file is corrupted

C:\WINDOWS\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\G1H3G53J\Cult3D_IE_5.3.0.228[1.].cab\IECult.dll   Unable to scan Cab file is corrupted

C:\FILE000D.CHK\FILE000D  Unable to scan GZIP archive is corrupted

I would  be grateful if you would help me with the above problem. I would like to thank you in advance :)

CAB files are often used to distribute applications. During installation, the Setup program extracts files from the CAB file and copies them to the appropriate location on the hard disk.

The files that scanned corrupted are those backups in the Restore Utility.  Unfortuantely, they cannot be saved so delete them and you should be fine.

Safe and recommended to be deleted  :)

Unfortunately I continue to have a problem. I can’t delete manually the above files since I can’t find them in my computer although I used the search tool. Is there any way I could solve my problem or not? My OS is Millennium. Thanks for the help.

Are the files hidden? If you go to Windows Explorer > Tools > Folder options > check to see system folders, hidden files, etc.
Can you boot into safe mode (press F8 while booting) and trying to delete the files in this way?

Disable the disputable feature of Windows ME or XP called SYSTEM RESTORE (to know how to do that refer to Windows help) and restart your computer. All files in folder C:\_RESTORE will be deleted. Then you can turn that feature on again, if you wish.

Ok I managed to delete the first four successfully. However I continue to have the following two:

1) C:\WINDOWS\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\G1H3G53J\Cult3D_IE_5.3.0.228[1].cab\IECult.dll

I have  found this file from the path but IECult.dll can't be deleted there no such option. Is it because  I have evaluation version of winzip?

2) C:\FILE000D.CHK\FILE000D 

With this file I don't know with which program to open FILE000D.CHK so that I can delete FILE000D 

Thanks for your help :D

Why? Is it inside of a zip file?
I think this webpage could guide you on 'deep' deleting of files: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;315226
Maybe you must run:
DEL \\.\C:\WINDOWS\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\G1H3G53J\Cult3D_IE_5.3.0.228[1].cab\IECult.dll
 
2) C:\FILE000D.CHK\FILE000D 
With this file I don't know with which program to open FILE000D.CHK so that I can delete FILE000D

It should be an scandisk file. But you can't open as it is just recovered fragments of files generated by scandisk.
Most probably, in your case, just a virus (infected file).
Can you try to delete as above?

When you say run
DEL \\.\C:\WINDOWS\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\G1H3G53J\Cult3D_IE_5.3.0.228[1].cab\IECult.dll

you mean todo the following
Start - Run and then write the above path in the space provided or something else?
Because I did and after that an error window appeared Have done something wrong?
Thanks for your invaluable help :D

I think you will never find IECult.dll because it is inside the .cab file 'C:\WINDOWS\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\G1H3G53J\Cult3D_IE_5.3.0.228[1.].cab'

However, you shouldn't need to delete the IECult.dll, just empty your IE temporary Internet Files (browser cache), that should get rid of the .cab file that contains the iecult.dll file.

Yes, you're right. But first, follow what David said. It'll be better.
If you can't delete the cab file, then open a cmd (DOS) window and write:
DEL \\.\C:\WINDOWS\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\G1H3G53J\Cult3D_IE_5.3.0.228[1].cab
or
DEL "\\.\C:\WINDOWS\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\G1H3G53J\Cult3D_IE_5.3.0.228[1].cab"

No, probably you (and I  :-[) forgot the quotes ""  :'(

Thank you so much Technical and DavidR. I have eventually deleted
C:\WINDOWS\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\G1H3G53J\Cult3D_IE_5.3.0.228[1.].cab
Now I have only C:\FILE000D.CHK\FILE000D  to delete
I have opened a DOS window and written

DEL "\\.\C:\FILE000D.CHK\FILE000D"  but I get an answer that it wasn't deleted
What should I do now?
Thanks for your help :)

What about removing the quotes?
DEL \\.\C:\FILE000D.CHK\FILE000D
or
DEL \\.\C:\FILE000D.CHK\FILE000D*

Can you get the short name (like DOS 8+3 characters) of the path?
I mean, something like:

DEL \\.\C:\FILE00~1\FILE000D
