Hi - I have rid my computer of adware and the antivirus software found one more infected file, but could not fix or delete it.  The file is a .cab file that was saved from an old computer I used to use.  I wonder if it is ok to delete it.  it is a win98_40.cab file.  My current computer is running Windows 8.  I'm not longer using Windows 98.  Any advice?

Its okay to delete. The file is used to extract Windows dlls or system files when corrupted. As long as you are no longer using Win 98 you can delete it.

If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.
