Question about Trend Micro Housecall

In the past I always left my computer alone (with all applications and/or windows except the one browser window closed) while running the Trend Micro Housecall online scan. Yesterday I was short on time and had to transfer some .jpg and .doc files to and from a flash drive while the scan was running.

Two questions:

1. Could the files (or any other part of my system) have become damaged as I was working on them while the scan was going?
2. Could the results of the scan have been affected because I had folders/applications open?


Thanks in advance!

It's No to both questions -- nothing will be harmed, damaged or missed if you have folders/files open or you are performing other tasks at the same time as the scan is in progress. Depending on your available system resources the only downside is that a scan will take longer to complete if you are doing other stuff at the same time, and/or the PC will seem temporarily more sluggish than usual.

Thanks for your reply Pip!

I'm sorry I couldn't thank you earlier, I did not have access to the internet between my last post and now.
