After running a complete system virus scan, the report shows numerous warnings, "The file could not be opened." These are all in the C:\Windows\System32\config\--- and C:\Documents and Settings\--- files.
I am currently using Antivir personal. I have seen the same results using the trial version of NOD32.

Question?? How can I set the av scanner to scan these files??

Thanks in advance.
