The [Embedded#DODGY] suffix to the path makes me think this isn't a a cast iron detection.
Basically I believe it can't extract the suspect/detected file inside the SymKBFix.msi file from the within the zip file. That may be what is also triggering the corrupt file message as it can't fully extract it. Was this corrupt file message an avast one ?
I wouldn't even consider a format, this is a pain in the rear rather than a really serious issue.
What symantec applications do you have, as this symantec live update could be removed if you don't have any, beware there are some sneaky ones, I have winfax pro which was bought out by symantec, so I have live update although I don't let it do anything.
Have (or did) you another AV installed in this system, if so what was it and how did you get rid of it ?
I get the corruption error when I try to open the zip directly.
As far as I know I don't have any Symantec apps, my rig is mainly for gaming.
Um, I believe Avast and Ad Aware have been the only programs on this pc, although there is a sliiiim possibility that AVG was installed like 2 years ago. My memory is pretty hazy o.0 Oh, and SUPERantispyware was just installed today upon common recommendations.
I have moved the zip into my recycle bin for the moment but haven't perma-deleted it yet.
Thanks for responding so quickly
I'm quite afraid of this being a keylogger or something and I am needing to purchase something I want online for 30+ dollars less than usual and I have no idea how long the sale will last, so your help means alot to me
I just finished another scan as I was typing this msg. It found 4 instances of it (supposedly) and 2 of them were moved to the chest and the other 2 recieved errors when I try to perform an action. The other embedded dodgy was in my C:\windows\install (or installer) folder, but I can't find that folder even after revealing all folder types in the folder options.
EDIT: This is the specific error it gives- "Error occurred during *ACTION*:This operation is not supported for this type of archive."
I've uninstalled symantec stuff and the instance in the c:\WINDOWS\Installer folder is the last one, but I can't find the folder
