Can you give us a few examples of the file names? (where this error is reported)

42006 error is related to AVAST_OFFLINEFILE File is not present on drive > migrated to offline device !!!
as you can see in the link posted by David.
Maybe temporary files that can't be scanned by avast!
The ones from system restore could be 'deleted' disabling this feature, booting and enabling it again.

If you scan the same files using Simple User Interface (with maximum sensitivity) - do you get the same errors?
