bit defender could not scan these files saying they are protected by a password but i don't know if i should add them to the exceptions list or not. I have just started using bit defender as my virus protection, i have used norton for many years and it never came up on there [but nor did a lot of things-thats why i switched]. I don't know what these files are or for.


here are the files it can't scan:

I'm not positive as to what they are but they arent malicious. Probably from Macafee or Norton.

I wouldn't delete them, just have them ignored to err on the side of caution

Use McAfee Consumer Product Removal Tool: http://majorgeeks.co...Tool_d5420.html to get rid of leftovers.

I have tried the removal tool and it did nothing, so i contacted mc affee and it is in the recovery-restore buldled software that came with the puter. But they offered me no help.
