Hi Corex3D, welcome to the forum :)

No, nothing to worry about, we have seen this before. Most likely you have a pre-installed Windows on your system. Simply ignore it or uncheck 'Follow links during scan' in 'Scan Settings - Sensitivity' of the scan, although I don't recommend that.

well it is not malware, it is just an scan error, a file it cant find for whatever reason

have you tried a reboot?
