I can't answer about those particular files, but scans will often notify you about infected System Restore files which they cannot touch. These are no danger unless you happen to pick an infected file to Restore. A lot of Windows Files are locked to prevent damage to them from unwary actions.
The fix is to make a new Restore Point when you are satisfied that your machine is clean, and then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recent restore point.

"Object is locked skipped" or "Access Denied" notations in a scan are normal. Some files are locked by the operating system or running programs during use for protection, so scanners cannot access them. When the scanner finds such a file, it just skips to the next one. These skipped detections are normally not malware related nor are they infected.
