Drives F,G,H and I will almost certainly be CD/DVD drives and card-reader or thumb-drive. If nothing is inserted in these drives and antivir is configured to check them, that's why you are getting the "no data medium is inserted!" message. To avoid this in future scans you need to configure antivir to only check hard drives if this is possble.

The "file could not opened" message is normal for files which are "locked" (ie being used by Windows whilst the scan is running). Since they are only DAT or LOG files, I doubt they would contain a virus anyway. Most viruses need to be attached to a program file ('exe' or 'com' files for example).

Only way to check files currently being used by Windows is to run a virus checker in DOS - but that's a rare feature now that DOS is no longer an essential component of Windows.
