Do you have Spybot Search and Destroy? It's not really a big deal, just some program has password protected files that they don't want you to touch (I'm betting it is Spybot S&D).

Let us know the path to these files and perhaps we can identify why they are there.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 23.4.6062 (build 23.4.8118.762) UI 1.0.762/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

in fact they were all files compressed and protected by password in the recovery of Spyboot S&D...i erased them but with two files i'm not able to delete.....

do you think it's possible?

since those files are just the backup archives of spybot s&d...they shouldn't pose any problems...it's quite normal to have files that are password-protected or whatever that cannot be scan by avast or any other av
