Outlook 2007: Error 1334: The file "OUTLFLTR.DAT" cannot be installed . .

I have a user running Windows XP Pro with SP3 on a Dell laptop

In Outlook 2007, every time user opens Outlook it starts to process a normal “Send and Receive”. Then a dialog pop up box comes up that says “Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007”
In this dialog box, it says

Error 1334: The file "OUTLFLTR.DAT" cannot be
installed because the file cannot be found in the cabinet file
“PATCH_CAB”. This could indicate a network error, an
error reading from the CD-ROM, or a problem with this
package

-       I tried inserting a the installation CD to try to recover the file. Didn’t work.
-      I tried reinstalling Office 2007 from the original CD. I chose the “repair” option. It went thru the process and came to a point where the same error popped up and backed out of the installation.
-      I tried running the Office diagnostics. It found no issues
-      NOTE: the user stated she ran her Panda Antivirus program and believes is found an infected file and deleted. I looked at the log – and sure enough, a virus called “TRJ/CI.A” infected C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\outlfltr.dat.  
Is my best option to restore this file? If so, How do I get it? It appears I need to extract it from a .CAB file. Could I copy it from a know good PC? If so, does it have to be the same O/S. I have a Windows 7 PC running the same Office 2007 enterprise version.

It is here.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943559

The file concerned is a junk filter.
1. Close Outlook 2007 first, make sure OUTLOOK.EXE IS NOT IN THE PROCESS LIST.

2. Try to go to the link below for the latest Junk Email Filter for Outlook 2007 first.
