    I recently loaded my os vis recovery disc I downloaded Avast free version. All seems ok until I looked at the scan log for this scan and it has 15 files that could not be scanned explaining it witht he message after each one Error: Archive is password Protect... Nothing should be password protected on the machine yet asd I haven set any.


    The path indicated is the same except for the ending;
    C: User\user2\...|>download.js
    downloader.dll
    downloaderror.js
    downloadfailure.js
    downloadmanager.js
    downloadslate.js
    manifest.json
    launcher.dll
    launcher.js
    manifest.json
    process.js
    serialize.js
    textfilereader.js
    textfilewriter.js

    IS the usual procedure of hijackthis, necessary here or can someone explain this?

    Thanks

    Try posting this question at avast Forums - perhaps they can advise you. Was this avast! Version 7 you downloaded? If so, they have had some problems with it - you probably can find someone there who can help. Hope this helps.

    Many programs password protect their files for legitimate reasons. It's not necessarily an indication they are suspicious. If they're coming from a Temp folder, periodically clear the files in the folder.

    Thanks JB I'll check that forum.
    Phantom010 I don't know the actual location that path above is copied exactly as written and does not expand when I scroll over it in the Scan Log.

    I did a new scan and got the path C:\Users\user2\APPDATA\Local\SolidStateNetworks\downloader.bundle|> What is Solid State Networks and how did it get on my machine? I have deleted it and removed all temp files. I am going to restart and rescan. Thanks

    The scan results came up clean. Time to change passwords. It'd be nice if anyone knew what Solid State Networks is would post it here for future info.
