Hello everybody,

I have received this Avast! boot-time scan report that reads...

File C:\System Volume Information\_restore{999C12B5-CB19-4F5B-BDA0-9037372BFA5A}\RP4\A0001231.msi\Binary.OCFXCA Error 42145 {OLE archive is corrupted.}
File C:\System Volume Information\_restore{999C12B5-CB19-4F5B-BDA0-9037372BFA5A}\RP4\A0001231.msi\Binary.BIN_File_107602 Error 42145 {OLE archive is corrupted.}
File C:\System Volume Information\_restore{999C12B5-CB19-4F5B-BDA0-9037372BFA5A}\RP4\A0001231.msi\Binary.BIN_File_46002 Error 42145 {OLE archive is corrupted.}

And yet the "Number of infected files: 0". Quit frankly I even could manage to find a System Volume Information folder or whatever in my PC. Please can one of you help me to solve it?

Regards.

Hi!

The system volume information folder is related to System Restore (where all the restore point data is stored). The folder is not only classified as hidden, but also a system folder and I highly recommend that you do not play with these folders.

Firstly, thanks aommaster for your attention...

I understand it's dangerous to play with such a file. But should I let it as it is, I mean corrupted. If there's something that can be done in order to fix this error I'd really appreciate your help. Coach me, please.

Regards.

Hi!

Glad to help out! If they're corrupted, then your only choice would be to reset your restore points and create a new one now. Follow the instructions below:

Purging System Restore Points
Set a New Restore Point
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "OK".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
