Are the warnings in the scanner reports dangerous?

The warnings in the scanner log usually refer to files, which were being accessed by other programs and thus could not be checked for malware by Avira software.

In general, this has nothing to do with virus suspicions. In order to reduce the number of warnings, close all applications before starting the scan.
