SOME FILES COULD NOT BE READ
« on: November 19, 2013, 05:58:39 PM »

   In the last scan I did this came up.....C:\User\JimBag\downloads\install_flashplayer 11 x32 au_mssa_aaa_aih.exe|>images\bglistbullet.png.......it says that some files cannot be read and this showed up on 15 times. Is this serious????, do I delete it, move it to the chest, what?????? Thanks in advance.

it is just a scan error message no more no less....not a detection
avast is a antivirus program and will only take action on infected files

"Some files cannot be scanned" is just that, nothing more, nothing less.
Some file that cannot be scanned include archive files, password protected files, and non-executable files.
Seeing that your error is an installation file avast won't act upon it until it has been executed.

Sidenote: Before installing a new version of Flash uninstall the old version.  :)
