Windows 7: removing damaged archive files?

20 Apr 2012   #1

removing damaged archive files?

Running win 7. Just scanned my C drive w/ESET and the scan turned up several damaged archived files (see below).

Should I:
1. Delete the damaged archived files shown trusting that there won't be any repercussions later?
2. Leave everything as is and forget about it?
3. Any reason not to delete the damaged files and leave everything as is since all is currently good?

Thanks for any insight.

If these archived files do not open with the associated programs then it would be best to delete them.

CAB files can be opened by WinRar for sure and perhaps also with WinZip and 7-z.
