Nod32 error opening files

This is a discussion on Nod32 error opening files within the General Computer Security forums, part of the Tech Support Forum category. I recently installed nod32 anti-virus, and on the logs it says "error opening" after most of the files it scanned.

Hi -

I don't think that's a concern.

[4] Object cannot be opened. It may be in use by another application or operating system.
The files are either in use by the OS, another application, or are password protected.

This Eset KB article is for an older version, but I believe still holds true

I don't think many of these files are in use - ev nova for example. That is a game, and it does not run in the background or anything.

Hi -

I ran an ESET scan and my logs are very similar to yours.

If you wish to check on certain files, use SysInternals Process Monitor from Microsoft TechNet.

Process Monitor - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s.../bb896645.aspx

Download procmon.exe and save it to Documents folder - http://live.sysinternals.com/Procmon.exe

RIGHT-click on procmon.exe, select "Run as Administrator".

ProcMon help file - http://live.sysinternals.com/procmon.chm

You can look for the specific game file(s) and see what process(es) is using them.

Regards. . .

You must check the files which shows error and find weather there is any password or security to that files if not then scan your system completely.
