When I run my BitDefender or Shield 2010, S&D has a number of Password Protected "recovery" files that can't be scanned. Is this a problem? Either way, is there a way to eliminate them... or should I even worry about them?

I have the same thing happening with my anti virus program, I contacted the vendor and was told that some hackers have found a way to exploit the programs using MS scanning tools. Mine shows up when I defrag, I have X number of VP files that cannot be read. We may be hearing more about this from others, If it effects one it probably can effect many if not all VP programs.
