if you are not having any problems do not worry - AVG is the best and if it says no virus thats it as far as I am concerned - Certain files are locked by windows etc.

most are probably system files, that are `in use` so unscannable, and probably safe. i take it you aren't concerned about your PC having been hit by a virus and doing weird stuff....

i may be wrong.i get this too and as far as i know this is normal.windows will not allow access to certain system files to be scanned.

someone may be able to explain this for you in detail.

don't want to alarm you but i was running avg ,a pretty good anti virus -for nowt ,however after installing and running norton 2003 this told me that there was a virus {backdoor bionet}-which after 2 full scans of my system ,avg failed to find ,if running avg i reccomend that every so often say once a week you visit one of the online scanning facilities {symantec or panda}and do a online scan of your system ,this is a reassuring way of verifying the effectiveness of your anti virus software-i still use it even though i am running norton,hope this is of help -holly polly....
