Why would this error POPUP while doing a quick scan NIS2009?

Hi

I just did a quick scan and this pop up box popped up,I do remember taking the game disc out a bit to fast,with out clicking on exit on the game UI,Can I fix it by putting the game disc back in?? Sorry you have to wait till the picture clears.The pop up only occurs with the quick scan?

Cheers Mo Windows 7 64 bit, NIS2013

I fixed it by putting the disc back in letting it run then clicking exit and it has not popped up in any more,Don't know why it would throw the error during a scan?

Possibly left open files in the window's starting areas (files and memory) since the game / program was not exited properly.  This would have been stored and reloaded on each boot of the machine.  Do you clear your temp directories on shut down?

Click on Start | Run and type in %temp% and click OK.  An explorer window will pop up showing your ( the current user's ) temporary folder location.  You can select a file (any file) and then press CTRL + A to select all; hit DEL key and confirm the message to clean out your un-needed files. 

I do this manually before defragging my hard drives and I'm not sure but I think you can have windows clean out the files everytime you close / shut down.  I'll have to check and get back to you.

Hi

I followed your instructions but it said there is a hidden folder in there and would I like to delete that as well?? Does it matter there is a hidden folder?

I have never seen that file name before but that doesn't mean a thing.  All kinds of legitimate programs make all different types of temporary files as 'place holders' for data swapping, file building, etc.  Some may be hidden because they do not want you to delete them while the owner program is running.  Scan the directory with Norton and see what it says.

Ok

NIS2009 came up with a scan error Unable to open file etc maybe because another program is using it....

Malwarebytes scanned it and it's ok.Its name stayed the same but the numbers changed...in between I had gone into safe mode for a look!

Not worried just curious that a hidden file was in the %temp% section.Thanks for your help.

The etilqs temporary files belong to Firefox.  Every time you open Firefox it creates one of these (sqlite, backwards) to store session information.  These are benign.  When you close Firefox the current etilqs temp file will be automatically deleted.Message Edited by SendOfJive on 04-25-2009 01:17 PM

Skype also creates those temp files as well
