Avast cant scan some files
« on: January 27, 2015, 10:03:50 PM »
For some reason whenever I try to do a scan it says "some files could not be scanned" and all the files in the C:\$windows.~BT cant be scanned. it says "error: File can not be accessed by the system (1920)." I tried uninstalling it and re-installing it but nothing works and I don't know what to do. please help
