Suspected corruption of critical MS files

Reported by: nicknalder Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: nicknalder, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


I have installed FileZilla 2.2.15 client on two machines
Both machines have suffered otherwise inexplicable
corruption of core MS software

And yes, I am running up to date virus software on both

  • Machine 1: Windows Explorer consistently failed to

load correctly during Windows XP boot up, following a
restart. Required an OS re-install

  • Machine 2: MS Outlook encountered problems and

had to close; failed to start in safe mode and reported
missing CAB files, requiring repair from original
installation disks

I cannot prove that FileZilla was the culprit. However,
neither machine has had any similar problems before,
and both happened within a few hours of installing
FileZilla 2.2.15

Has anyone else noticed anything similar?

FileZilla does not modify any system files. As long as you only download FileZilla from this site, it will be free of any malware.
