Hello sportman32922 and welcome to BC :flowers:

Reading between the lines here, I think what you mean is that when you scan with a security program it says that it cannot scan certain files because they are password protected. Am I right? If this is the case, please provide the names of some of the files or programs that are password protected. My guess is that these are connected with other security programs, in which case you have nothing to worry about.
