I have learned in the last several hours that this is a "false positive,"
and that CA is working on a "fix." But here's a question which an online
tech support person was unable to answer. Since 35 system files were
"quarantined," and I have subsequently run System File Checker (three
times), Should assume that the "missing" files have been restored. In that
case, should I not "restore" the files from the CA Quarantine list? Or
should I delete them?

| " first off, update to signature file 6606
| 2. turn off real time protection (real time scanner)
| 3. restore the files from the quarintine (windows will complain that the
| file is not genuine, this is because it was "modified" and the checksum
| for the file has changed, it does not mean the file is different or
| broken, tell windows to use it anyway) *after reboot if windows is still
| angry, you will need to go to microsoft.com and find the download for XP
| service pack 3 to fully restore modified or deleted files. none of the
| affected files should prevent your machine from starting up, though it
| may complain a bit.
| 4. turn the scanner back on but keep the "clean" and "quarintine" boxes
| unchecked for the moment
| 5. scan your windows directory and everything inside, if there are no
| problems you can return to your normal AV settings and hope Ca buys a xp
| machine to check new sig files on "
