Files that end with an underscore in the file extension part of the name are normally compressed versions of system files.   You use the Expand command to decompress them.  Ikernel.exe is a file used by the InstallShield program installation engine.  Try this:  click on Start, then Run, type CMD and hit the  enter key.  Now use the EXPAND command to decompress the file into the \Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Engine folder.



Here's the syntax for the Expand command:

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

expand /?
Microsoft (R) File Expansion Utility  Version 5.1.2600.0
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp 1990-1999.  All rights reserved.

Expands one or more compressed files.

EXPAND [-r] Source Destination
EXPAND -r Source [Destination]
EXPAND -D Source.cab [-F:Files]
EXPAND Source.cab -F:Files Destination

  -r            Rename expanded files.
  -D            Display list of files in source.
  Source        Source file specification.  Wildcards may be used.
  -F:Files      Name of files to expand from a .CAB.
  Destination   Destination file | path specification.
                Destination may be a directory.
                If Source is multiple files and -r is not specified,
                Destination must be a directory.
