    NOD 32 trial version cannot scan these files:

    C:\hiberfil.sys and C:\pagefile.sys according to the AV, these contain 4 files each that are "in use by another program or Operating System" should I be concerned?

    Thanks in advance

    No need to worry. These are files used exclusively by Windows. NOD is telling you it cannot scan them, becuse the OS has a lock on them. But for the same reason a virus cannot infiltrate them either.
