    Hi

    I use Vista 64 Ultimate (also tried the same on Vista 64 Business, the result is the same). When I do a complete scan I get first these errors:

    C:\pagefile.sys - error opening
    C:\Windows:AstInfo - error opening
    C:\Boot\BCD - error opening
    C:\Boot\BCD.LOG - error opening

    Can anyone please explain what this actually means? Is my system at risk because NOD cannot open these files? Or is there some more comforting explanation.

    Thank you in advance,
    S

    If NOD cannot open the files coz they are exclusively used by the OS, then no other application can open them either.

    So no risk for the PC what so ever? :)
