Not sure if this is a problem or not. Ran Avast (paid) both quick scan and full (folder only) scan, both found 13 files it could not scan because "Archive is password protected. (42056)."

Path shown for files is:
C:\Users\Name\Downloads\ppa-dlm.exe |> css\default.css
C:\Users\Name\Downloads\ppa-dlm.exe |> images\_mask.png
C:\Users\Name\Downloads\ppa-dlm.exe |> images\bgbpdu-ie6.png
for a total of 12 *.png files. No other files listed.

Using both Windows Explorer and Q-Dir the path "C:\Users|Name\Downloads\" does not show a file, archive, or folder "ppa-dlm.exe", or a subdirectory "images". A search for any of the file names shows no match.

A Google search finds at least one site listing ppa-dlm.exe is a Nuance download manger.

If so perhaps not a bad thing, but why does Avast find it and neither of the directory mangers find it? Why would these files be password protected.

I forgot to say that Windows (8.1, updated) is set to show known file types, to show hidden directories, show system files. I date back to the DOS prompt, it makes me nervous not to see what's there.

files that can not be scanned are just that, it does not mean they are infected
avast just gave you a scan error report and the reason why

many programs protect there files with passwords like security programs / adobe .... and more

files that can not be scanned is the most frequent asked question in this forum so you find a million posts with info if you search
