    This is a dll file that is used in Internet Explorer and it might be corrupt. To fix this you might need your recovery or installation disk for Windows

    Ryn the following from the run box

    sfc /scannow

    When this is done reboot the computer and try the cleanup again.

    I tried using the above file checker, it asked me for the win xp cd which i inserted into the drive and it checked everything and after reboot the icon still appears in the windows clean up menu @C:\windows\system32\occache.dll
