    I had a few problems, which I hope have been resolved, but I still have two downloaded files which say they are damaged.

    In XP using IE, Tools -> Internet Options -> Settings -> View Objects
    the following files have the status "damaged:"

    Async Downloader Class
    cpbrkpie Control

    A. Do I fix them? Delete them? Ignore this?
    B. What is the likely cause of this? Virus? Worm? Spyware?

    When attempting to load a second virus software, the following file was deleted from my Temp Internet Files: C:\Documents&Settings\my name\localSettings\temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\ECJHRSQ9 motiveSB.exe
    Was this something sinister? It seems to have fixed everything except my mouse (2 of the 5 buttons don't operate as programmed and I'm having no luck finding new drivers for it).

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions. :)

    I have been told that cpbrkpie is a virus. I tried to remove it, but my wireless optical mouse doesn't work in safe mode for some reason.
    Also, my wireless router is giving me grief and I had to bypass it to get online.
    Anyone have some input?
