    What are the setting to scan inside restore points such as RPxx inside the System Volume Information? NOD32 should be able to scan such files, or are they already being checked during a scan? I read on here, in another post, that it cannot scan Windows System Files or locked files.

    Since restore points are considered files, they are being scanned unless one un-selects Objects > Files in whatever scan it's related to....Real-time file system protection, Context menu, In-depth, etc.

    Here's a fairly recent thread that concerned restore points.

    Thanks Bubba! I went on my wifes computer and tried a manual scan. Besides her having TOO many restore points, worked fine. So, where do the locked files come to bear?
