    Hello--I recently downloaded your program and find it very useful and powerful---too powerful for novices like myself at times.
    I am running a scan at the moment and get the message that could not open C:\recycler\s-1-5-21-3405039426-3485517607-2614902147-1006\dc65.exe for read acces--file is locked.
    There are 5 more identical ones except for the endings---dc-20,64,65,73,83,84
    What are these files and could they be malicious? Thanks for your help.

    That is the recycle bin on your desktop where all your deleted files go

    nothing should be able to scan inside there or clean anything because it's already deleted

    if you are at all worried then just empty recycle bin


    Edit:

    Actually there is a way of editing the registry and a few settings to show recycle bin & system restore folders in XP and allow TDS and some antiviruses to scan and selectively fix inside of those folders, but I can't remember it for now, even though i have mine set this way.
