TLB File Format

OLE type library files (Microsoft)

TLB is a file extension for Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) type library file format used by Microsoft Visual C++ software development program, part of Microsoft's ActiveX technologies. OLE is Microsoft's framework for a compound document technology.

Briefly, a compound document is something like a display desktop that can contain visual and information objects of all kinds: text, calendars, animations, sound, motion video, 3-D, continually updated news, controls, and so forth.

TLB files are created in Visual Basic when an OLE or ActiveX server is created.

The TLB file extension is also associated with Bubble Editor table reference files and VAX text library files.

I find under Programmes in my computer a name "offeerasale" which I did not reognize, and I am always suspicious whenever I meet such a program. Clicking on it I get two lines: 1LSKxQUnHICRZZ (dat.file), and next 1LSKxQUnHICRZZ.tlb. Therefore I have looked for tlb files - but I have not found answers, and I cannot find "offerasale"
