Boot Scan Error?
« on: February 20, 2009, 09:34:19 AM »
Hi there,

Preformed a scheduled Boot scan on my desktop running XP MCE.

How would you interpret the results......

How can this error be rectified?

What caused it to occur?

Should I be concerned that machine is infected?

Thanks.

Yezinki.

The machine is not infected.
The packaging of the file could have some error, or use a non-standard pattern...

My interpretation is nothing to worry about.

There are zero infected files.

The report of archive possibly corrupt is outside your control and it doesn't mean they are infetced or otherwise. It may be nothing more than avast is unable to fully unpack the archive and it believes this may be due to corruption.
