This looks suspicious to me. Is it? When I googled it, BleepingComputer.com came up with a lot of info on viruses. I may be paranoid, but nonetheless, I'm leary...   

...anyone know anything about this?

What is your antivirus, avast?

 

An antivirus will look only for infections and will not deal with other files, this is not an infection.

 

Are there any other files listed other than that one?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

avast!WEBforum Topic: Strange Results

"Object is locked skipped", "Error Opening - (File locked)", "Not tested", "Access Denied", "Some files could not be scanned", "Password Protected" or "Encrypted" notations in an anti-virus/anti-malware scan are not uncommon. Some files and services are locked by the operating system or running programs during use for protection, so scanners cannot access them. Other legitimate files, especially those used by security programs, may be obfuscated, encrypted or password protected in order to conceal itself so they do not allow access as a protective measure. When the scanner finds such an object, it makes a note and then just skips to the next one. That explains why it may show with such notations but no action taken in certain anti-virus or anti-malware log scan reports. These are normal when using many security scanning programs so there is seldom a need for concern.

BTW, Adobe Flash Player downloading file contains bgdownloadbarfull.png, along with the other files reported at the avast forum.

Adobe Flash Player - Virus and Spyware scan results: Archive ZIP password protected, skipped
