Let me start off by saying I am new to this forum (first post) and not technologically inclined AT ALL, but my new years resolution was to immerse myself in things that I do not fully understand so here I am
Alright... so my computer has been moving mega slow (start-up is slow, freezing when watching things online) so I initially ran a complete system scan using my free Avast Antivirus software, and sure enough threats were detected. I was prompted to run a 'boot-time scan' which is currently under way (i'm using my netbook to write this). I have been writing down some of the infections coming up and researching them for more details, and this forum is where I have ended up.
Some if the infections that are coming up are as follows:
-DLL error 42127 (CAB archive is corrupted)
-CAB error 42144 (OLE archive is corrupted)
I would like assistance understanding ...
-what these infections are??
-How do I determine whether to repair vs. delete ??
