  Description  
     
 

While a .CAB file (used to hold Windows installation files) may be defective, it is more likely an update to XP (KB978601) caused previously valid signature validation to fail for some CAB files.

An update may have installed a new version of WinTrust.dll which has a more sensitive validation design that is not fully compatible with older .CAB files.

While far from ideal, if you uninstall KB 978601, it will return the older WindTrust.dll that works correctly with your .CAB files.

To uninstall, select Start, Control Panel, and then Add or Remove Programs. Uninstall KB 978601.

WinTrust.dll is the core Authenticode DLL in Windows used to validate the signature of a file is valid. It can reduce the chance of viruses and malware modifying .CAB files.
