Hi.

Please note we cannot see your PC. Whilst you might know what "this file" and "it" refer to, we don't.

johnnyrocker is asking is Sophos is reporting a Sophos Anti Virus file is corrupt or a file Sophos has FOUND is corrupt.

Please tell us EXACTLY what the message says. What is the name of the file that is corrupt? What else does the message say?

I Run sophos at work and on several of the machines errors have come up saying corrupt file. It is usually something to do with internet explorer.

I just ignore them, as long as your machine is running as you want it then I wouldn't worry. Do a virus scan with the latest update just to be sure that nothing has infected your system. If it comes back clean then carry on as normal.

I've deleated the files before but they where only temp file made when surfing the net.
