It?s a Buddylist Adware. The page uses codebase object to run the
ActiveX component:

<OBJECT ID="ShellInstaller" WIDTH=0 HEIGHT=0

The cab file contains the files Shellinstaller.ini (2.119 bytes) and the
binary ShellInstaller.ocx (81.920 bytes). The activex component hooks
itself to IE and works as a typical adware component. No virus code
