What if you scan the folder
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft
or maybe the parent
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data
using the avast! scan from the Explorer context menu - do the same errors appear?

Hello DavidR

Thanks for the portable SAS link. I ran it using default quick scan with latest definition and no threats were detected. Also, I ran a cmd prompt with one of my error files as suggested in another post and results showed an invalid file.

You're welcome, hopefully we are getting closer to a resolution.

Well, not that close... I was just trying to make sure it's related to the ordinary scan, and not to the antirootkit scan which is part of the quick/full system scan.

PK had some suggestions in the other thread:

I'd say it's worth trying...

Unless it reveals something obvious, I guess I'll have to prepare a special executable - doing the same processing as the scanning engine, but dumping some more info about it.

Yes, I had the same problem as you and I also found it resolved yesterday.
