    HI, i was wondering if there is a way to scan the files that come up blue during scans. they usually say file locked[4], or similar.
    can a virus hide in these files?

    also is there any difference between the trial and paid versions?

    thank you.

    The Blue [4] locked files are swap files that are being used by Windows, from what I have been advised, these files can not be infected as they are continuously being changed.

    Trial version is the same as the full version except there are no engine updates available...

    Hope this helps...

    Cheers :D

    My pleasure.

    Ask as many questions as you like, there is never a dumb question when it comes to learning, it could be just a missed opportunity...

    Cheers :D
