« on: March 07, 2009, 04:23:13 PM »
Hello I'am a Newby...
 :D

This started about a month ago..I have the freeby virus avast..When I'm done scanning, the results say "Unable to Scan" to 902 lines..any suggestions?  Also, does this do spyware or do I need to get the one Separately   ?? Thanks

See http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=35347.msg297170#msg297170 this topic for more information on why files can't be scanned.

Files that can't be scanned are just that, not an indication they are suspicious/infected, just unable to be scanned.

No problem, glad I could help.

If you have any other queries on specific entries, you can post some of the common examples, file name and location. But with the file name and location you can generally work out if the reason was legitimate.
