If you would have read the message, I stated that it showed up in scans but
could not be found on the system. If you must have the exact text from the
9/6/2005,9:37:59 WARNING: AVGuard detected a problem in the file
INFO: The access to the file has been denied!
If the information had contained something helpful, I would have posted it.
Also, to keep the messages to a smaller size, I didn't post the text from
Filemon. I am quite sure that folks are smart enough to ask for the
information if they need it.
Thank you for the link! :) Good reading although my computer is
experiencing none of the symptoms listed.

No it doesn't. ADS filenames have a ':' as a separator. That name only
has dots in it and so is not an ADS. It is part of some kind of known
I guess y0himba's AV is detecting the attempt to access this file as
suspicious whether or not it actually exists, but he forgot to mention
anything about what the AV actually _says_ about it. y0himba, next time
you're reporting an error message, how about actually quoting the text, huh?
