    Usually windows errors that begin with a 4 mean the system cannot open the file, I could be wrong about this - but if it were me I would go to folder options- show hidden files- and find \users\ray\app data\microsoft-html and use unlocker - see what is locking it - then unlock it- (do not remove it yet)- once it's unlocked- run sweeper again. ( don't forget to go to folder options and close hidden files)

    If it were me I would keep in quarantine for 15 days and see if you get any more windows errors during that time,if not delete it from your computer. You can always copy the name of the file from the Avast log and paste in your browser and do a search.
