last night my msn started for no reason to play up and kept kicking me out and not sign in. after i finished for the night i decided to run avast which took a lot longer than usual, at the end of the scan i was presented with a box of 1078 files it said could not scan as password protected, i have nothing so secret that i use passwords so i set about deleting, i ended up with 700 it could not do anything about the other files are marked as ok now but not deleted, any advice on what is happening please?

assuming you have not already done so, suggestion would be to do a batch of other scans

fully update and run on full deep scans

my thanks for the suggestion, i had the first two on board, ran all three and all that happened was super anti spyware found 26 ad tracking cookies, still puzzled.

an absence of interest leads me to decide to close this and try various things myself, thanks to those who tried.
