Something IS altering that file - compare it with the original in the C:\msgerbs2\amd64_server-help-chm.diskm_v.resources_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_en-us_d76955a45e11858c folder, which I uploaded; and the one in Winsxs


Code:
 
dir C:\msgerbs2\amd64_server-help-chm.diskm_v.resources_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_en-us_d76955a45e11858c

Mine shows as being 79.785 bytes

...VERY!
Please do the following.

run the following command...

Copy C:\Windows\Help\mui\0409\diskmgt.chm %userprofile%\desktop\dikmgmt.chx
DIR %userprofile%\desktop\dikmgmt.chx
DIR C:\Windows\Help\mui\0409\diskmgt.chm

This will copy the active (tampered) file to the desktop (with a minor rename) , then report on the filesize of the active one, and the copy - make a note of the size of each
please then navigate in your browser to www.virustotal.com and upload both files for test there.
post back with the links to the report.

This is the one from the desktop: https://www.virustotal.com/file/434e...is/1353423535/

The one from the windows directory: https://www.virustotal.com/file/434e...is/1353423643/

Both are clean.

And the results of the command prompt:

The SHA256 for the files is the same- which pretty much guarantees that the files are identical
Here's the one I sent you - https://www.virustotal.com/file/366d...is/1353521443/

I really have no idea what's going on - I'm going to ask for some assistance on this.
