What does this mean? and how bad is it?
« on: March 08, 2014, 03:05:42 PM »
Hi,
so my computer ran a slow lately... I tried to full scan it and I got the same result few times... it says (some files could not be scanned)... and I don't have the option to delete/repair/put to chest and it doesn't seem to auto-fix since I've got the same result again and again when I scan...
photo of the result is attached...
anyone has an idea about this?
thnx a lot

Sam

Run CCleaner and delete your temp files and then you shouldn't see it again, it'll also help with your system running slowly.
