Hi Im not 100 percent sure this goes here but it does have to do wit virus' so.........

Wen i scan using Avast i mite have infected files or no infected files but eitha way wen it gets to tha _restore

folder i ALWAYS do (ha ha emphasis on always). And it then will say unable to scan or that it could not delete or

move those files.

Also it sometimes comes up sayin Unable to scan drive in that little summary thing next to quite a few things.

Jus wondering what that means lyke why it does that and what should i do if its okay or not.

Mucho Gracias!

To remove malware from system restore, you delete all restore points. Below is a link to managing Windows Millenium System Restore.
