I've tried three times. Twice full and once quick. But once Avast finishes scanning, I get this 'Some files could not be scanned".. When I click on show results, I get "Error Archives is password protected". I cant take any action Send to chest delete, or anything. I did not set a password for my Archives. At least, not to my knowledge. I also uninstalled using Revo, but when I installed again the new version had the same problem. Thank you, in advance for any help. I added to this post yesterday. But. I guess I forgot to hit save changes. I changed the word above to scanned, I think I had saved there. So it is actually "could not be scanned. Hopefully fixing this mistake will make it easier for someone to help me' I uninstalled again, and installed a new one yesterday.. Still getting "Some files could not be scanned" At first I was thinking maybe I turned something on, or off in Avast without realizing it. But, I guess that doesn't make sense, because when I uninstalled it, and downloaded a new copy whatever I did would have been rectified. I'm going to wait until late this evening. If no one is able to help me by then I'm going to uninstall and download another AV. Any suggestions maybe AVG, or Avira ? It's me again. Last time I promise. Boy am I dumb. I need to install a new AV right away. Who knows what kind of crap could be on my machine since I can't scan it.
