It means that file is corrupted and must be replaced in order to fix the problem, if you require odbc connectivity then you can download the odbc drivers from Microsoft, simply download and install them and this will fix your problem.

A minimum install should work unless you need more options then choose the components to download.

If you do not use odbc then this error can be safely ignored.
