While scanning with Malwarebytes it stayed on a file for about 20 minutes, "lastalive1.dat".  Is this normal and if not what can I do about it?

Thank you.

Hi! My name is zep516 and Welcome to Geekstogo!

Please make sure to carefully read any instruction that I give you. If you're not sure, or if something unexpected happens, don't continue Stop and ask! Never be afraid to ask questions! :)

Not sure why Malwarebytes would get stuck there.

The file itself appears to be legit


lastalive0.dat and lastalive1.dat are data files used by the Reliability Analysis component of the Event Log service to test the hard drive for the formulation of the System Stability Index.


If it's still stuck reboot the machine.

Thanks
Joe :)

Are there any other issues ?

There were no issues just wondered why it took so long to scan this file.  It finally finished the file and got stuck on another but eventually got through with that one also and found no problems.  Thanks for the answer.
