Unscannable files in c:/RECYCLERS/

Created: 10 Jan 2013 | 8 comments

We have a computer with some issues, and everything seems to stem from the RECYCLERS file, 1406 unscannable docs. How do I change that setting so they are all scanned?

 

Thanks!

these are messages when the SEP cannot extract the archives or does not understand the files system , you can ignore such messages

Hello,

The errors do not indicate a malfunction in the product. The decomposer errors cannot be eliminated from system logs; they may be useful in alerting a customer to corrupt archives or deeply-compressed files that should be excluded from scans.

For other causes and solutions, see the related article: 

Symantec AntiVirus Error: "Could not scan [#] files inside [path][filename] due to extraction errors encountered by the Decomposer Engines" during a scan

Also, check the steps provided in the Thread below:

Hello,

Please check in the Add/ Remove programs for certain suspicious programs which should not be there. If there are any, please uninstall it.
