Avast - Unable to scan: Archive is password protected.

    I am having a problem with my Avast scan. When I run it, my scan results are showing 74 files with the result, "Unable to scan:Archive is password protected."

    One of the files is "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Recovery\DropSpam.zip\sbRecovery.reg"

    I tried entering this path into Windows explorer to see if I could get at it that way, but I got this message: "File 'sbRecovery.reg' is password protected. Please enter the password in the box below."

    I have NO idea what the password might be. I'm the only once who uses this laptop, so it's not like someone else set a password that I don't know. Any ideas?

    This is not malware....it is part of you Spybot program. These files do not require you to do anything with them. If you want further information, please post in the software forum. :)
