Locked Objects

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
Never saw this before: I did a Kapesrsky on-line scan of critical objects.
It didn't find any problems but it did find all these "locked objects." What
are these all about? Should they be locked?

Here is the report:

Yes, that's Windows doing that. Scanning in Safe mode will cut down on
on the problem of not being able to scan all files, and it may keep
sme malware some from running as well. The best way to scan is with
the use of a alternate operating system so that files aren't locked
and malware can't run.

Re: Locked Objects


I find it strange since NAV2006 doesn't show them locked.

How about NOD32 does it show them locked?

You tell me. I don't use NOD32. The various vendors may or may not
issue that particular message.
