    I've just run a virus scan of all drives etc and i noticed that several of the files in the log had "error opening" listed next to them, ie:

    C:\pagefile.sys - error opening

    C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\NTUSER.DAT - error opening

    etc etc

    Some also have "Error Reading Archive".

    I'm concerned that this implies that if there was a virus in those files that it wouldn't be detected...

    Any advice please?

    Is a swap file; no viruses in there... it's used as virtual RAM.

    This is a part of Windows registry; when it's locked, can't be opened.

    Would help to be more specific here.
