Right now I'm on a world tour looking for a new Virus scanner. Any tips on a good one will be great full. But I'm trying the 30 day trail of Bit defender and right away it finds a passworded file that I cant find on my pc and cant find any info on the net about.

Also after finding this file I can not do the malware scan manually. Only the scheduled scan will work. there are many times that clicking on the icon on the system tray or the desktop will not open it. when i do a deep scan which includes the malware scan it finds the file again and after closing says that i have yet to run a malware scan.

Since this is the first few days that I'm using this program I don't know if its just glicthy or what. But I just got off a year of trend micro and never had an issue like this. When I use windows defender it also finds nothing. Included is the log file.

Who's crazy me or the bit defender???

When scanning with BitDefender, you may come across some items that are marked as "password-protected", which BitDefender reports as potential threats

Detailed description:
In these cases, BitDefender is simply notifying you that it was unable to scan certain password-protected or otherwise encrypted items, due to the fact that a password or encryption key is required to access the contents of the archives/files that are listed. In order to scan these files with BitDefender, you will need to unlock these archives/files with the password that was used to protect them, or otherwise decrypt them using Windows Explorer, or another proprietary decryption method.

Regardless of this notification, BitDefender's real time protection will still block access to any infected file that may attempt to run on your computer and take the necessary actions to disinfect/quarantine the file.
