In order to assist you effectively and identify the offending malware, we need more specific information. Please read Before you post about a problem, Some simple guidelines and How To Not Get or Give Technical Assistance on Usenet and Web Forums.

What OS (Win 2K, XPsp1, XPsp2, Vista) are you using?
What version of your anti-virus are you using?
What type of archives and where are they located (full file path)?

Are they similar to this?

"C:\Program Files\JavaSoft\JRE\1.3.1_01\lib\rt.jar\META-INF\MANIFEST.MF [E] ZIP archive is corrupted. (42125)

If so, then be aware that the avast ZIP unpacker in older versions warned on such files because they are essentially zipped (compressed) files with corrupted checksums. This was normal behavior according to avast but version 4.8.1195 (May 12, 2008) was supposed to correct that issue.

boot-time scanner now correctly displays warning messages about corrupted archives
