I recently tried running my Mcafee Virus scan (Build 8.0.45) Provided by AOL.

And it starts up just fine and starts searching, but when it reaches the file
It stalls indefinitely on that file. I left it running for 7 hours and it wouldn't progress in it's scan at all.

I thought about reinstalling, but a quick investigation found that AOL offers no way to reinstall Mcafee without reinstalling the whole AOL program. So I'm hesitant to do that.
I thought about deleting the file in question but I've no idea exactly what it does so I won't do that either.

A websearch found nothing similar to this problem.
Any help would be most appreciated, thanks.


*the "I" in the file name could be a lowercase L, I'm not sure.
