Pc World mag(Aug 05, page190)advises all damaged files, shown in 'Remove Program File',should be removed.
I have one damaged, at the top of the list, which is accessed each time I start up apparently which is - {9FIC11AA-197B-4942-BA54-47.......F}. What is this file? Can I safe ly remove it? Although damaged, my computer likes to access it for some reason. Can anyone explain please?

Not without some more info to work with,such as OS,what program that code refers to,etc.

I think that you've missed a U out the ICTL.DLL damaged file,as Google couldn't find much on ICTL.DLL but did find IUCTL DLL and this is something to do with "Windows Update" So,unless your having trouble with updates,I would leave well alone.

Suppose a link might help ;-))

Yes I did miss out that U. I'll take your advice and leave well alone as I don't seem to have problems with MS updates - no error messages any way. That link is useful so I've printed it out for future ref.
Again many thanks for your help.
