ynot412, just do a "Boot Time Scan"! Then avast! (instead of the others) gets them all.

That sounds fine to me, BUT, the next stupid question is. What is (Boot Time Scan); where do I find it and How do I turn it on, thans for your assistance, I am called Besser, thicker than the normal brick.

Start avast!, click on the menue item in the left upper corner. Then you get a pull down menue with an item that's called "Timer for Boot Time Scan" (or so. Have to translate it from german to english...)

Boot Time Scan is a scan of the entire drive or a specific folder before Windows starts (works only in WIN2000/XP). So there are no files occupied and avast! can scan them.

What is the reason given for the files that were "unabled to scan"? "Archive is password protected"? In that case, it is not necessary to do anything about them.

It just said Unable to scan Ar
I assume that Ar might stand for archive, now that you mention it, thanks for your assistance....Tony Walker.

I believe it's possible to resize the window or column, to see the whole message.
