    I am a fairly new user of the Nod32 Program and I am having a slight issue with the scanning process. When the scans are completed I am notified that all of my files are locked and cannot be opened.

    The error in question looks like this:
    C:\hiberfil.sys - error opening (File licked) [4]
    And it repeats itself on every file it scans and when the scan is complete there is a note and the bottom of those which states:

    [4] File cannot be opened. It may be in use by another application or operating system.

    To my knowledge I only have one operating system and no other applications are running while I conduct these scans. My C Drive is in fact not locked, I leave that opened for obvious reasons. ;)

    My Operating system is Windows XP SP2 and the version of Nod32 I am using is 1.1670 (20060720) NT. I do not know if this is normal or if this is causing this program to not be able to scan and protect my system.

    I have recently had to restore my computer back to the beginning due to an attack which caused my system to delete all of its own data at a rapid pace, that issue has been taken care of but I do not have any theories on why this is happening when there is no obvious cause.

    Any help or suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Ozzy

    Hello . You have no problems . this is normal . Files which are in BLUE are locked because :
    They are either Windows files ,files in the system folder , files for your user accounts , other user files which are made private , password-protected ...or ..etc) . No problem about them . Files in RED are threats .

    Also , since you are new NOD32 user , read this and configure your NOD32 correctly
