I think it would help if you left out those marked as "Object is locked skipped"

There is nothing wrong with those files, they were just in use at the time of the scan.
That should shorten the log quite a bit.

Thanks for you reply.All the items in the log are marked as"object is locked skipped" so i presume i dont need to include them.As you can see from my post reply of today at 5.09pm the start part states that nothing dangerous or suspicious was found so i presume that sorts that one out.Please get back and let me know.Thanks Rangers01

Can you let me know which AntiVirus ou are actually using?

I saw AVG and AntiVir in your log and two resident AV's is not a good idea.

Your security setup looks good. :whistling:

But the most important factor is always the awareness of the lurking dangers.
Use your head and not your click-finger.
Keep everything updated and be carefull.

Glad we could help. :blink:
