locked system files


Just a quick one. My antivirus is saying these files are locked, does that seem ok?

Begin scan in 'C:\'

The files are locked because they are in use. C:\pagefile.sys, C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\dtscsi.sys and C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\sptd.sys are all ok. The first file is part of your operating system and the other two files belong to Alcohol/Daemon Tools software. C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\sptd5565.sys might as well but I'm not sure. Ask on their board.
