Seems to be something a lot of folks have had when you google it.

 

See here

(just to be on the safe side, make sure your scans are up to date)

 

Also read one post somewhere that removing google toolbar in add/remove programs worked for them... I cannot confirm this though.

Files Infected:

C:\Program Files\FileHippo.com\FHSetup.exe (Adware.BHO) -> No action taken.

C:\Program Files\FileHippo.com\Uninstall.exe (Adware.BHO) -> No action taken.

Hazel so you would think that given all computers with update checker and MBAM that everyone would get the same log and findings :wacko:

Oh the wonders of computers !!

well I think i`m clean but still doing my scans,as for the initial query I`ll wait and see if I get that error message again,I read some of the link you suggested and it seems like other people have had it

Although the thread is closed I want to answer the Avast issue.

 

Avast will often state a file is a decompression bomb when dealing with some WinRAR archives, and some installers use SFX RAR's now like many well known antivirus installers. I personally ignore them since the extracted files can be scanned.
