You mean a decompression bomb? ??? A decompression bomb is either a too-big file to be scanned by avast!, or it's a zip file that dumps a HUGE amount of data on your hard drive.

You should quote the post of whoever this reply goes to. ;)

This bomb is a file which doesn't exist, but the avast! found it.

Forget about the decompression bomb.
That's not your machine's problem. ;)

A decompression bomb is a file that unpacks to an enormous amount of data - thus "flooding" the unpacking engine.

You still need to update to IE8.

Some computer works fine with SP3 but some not

PC professionals recommand not to install SP3, only for a nwely installed system.
