Windows i386 lang korwbrkrle_

Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, 1.994 GHz / 991 MB
When running a full McAfee scan, the scan stops at c:\windows\i386\lang\korwbrkrle_. I've tried a handful of times and the scan stops at this same spot. What is causing this? What can I do?

I would suggest, to use another Virrus Scanner.
McAfee as well as Norton Antivirus isn't, what it was.

The original poster should always write the last response !!!
Let us know, if the problem is solved !!!

I think you either mean KORWBRKR.DL_or KORWBRKR.LE

If this is the case, check the modified date and you'll probably find it has been there since install. It is a compressed file so it's hard to see how it could ever be harmful. It's not a program file even when decompressed anyway. Maybe the coding just happens to look suspicious to McAfee.

Maybe you can set McAfee so that it ignores it because it's pretty certain that it is a Windows file and has probaby never been used.

Re post below. Sure, no harm making absolutely certain tho.

re; virus scans and utils;

Boot into safe-mode (with networking); disable system restore; then go on-line to and run their freebie Housecall util. Let it run a full scan; it may take a while...

Anything it quarantines on the system - delete it.

Then go to and download their free for home use virus util; save to HD.

Then reboot to normal-mode; disable system restore if active. Uninstall or at least diable permanently current virus util. Locate avast download and install avast. Then go on-line to update its definitions.

Then run a full avast scan - still with system restore disabled. Anything avast quarantines - delete it.

Once finished scan - reboot to see if all OK.

If all OK - re-enable system restore...

Another other approach: boot with a knoppix or ubuntu disk; go on-line as above to trend and run "Housecall" scan as before etc...

The download avast.

Reboot to current OS and disable system-restore; disable current virus util etc. Install avast etc. as above...

(I edited this post after reading Dereks's post above...) If this "file" is part of the OS... and McAfee is suddenly throwing a fit over it... and hasnt' before... wonder why?

A scan might be useful with other utils nonetheless.
