It's easier to get a handle on any file...once you have enabled the viewing of all file extensions.

I see no extension indicated for said file.

Hi, GlenS.
What machine are we dealing with?
Where was this file discovered?
What is the file extension association (*file_name*.cab, .exe, .iso, .vhd, .dat, .etc.)?
Do you notice any untoward behaviour from the machine?
It may be time to install SP/3? It wont hurt.... :lmao:
The update can be installed over the .net or there is the option to download an .iso file to be installed offline (updating muliple PCs).

edit:didn't see ya there :thumbup2:
