Strange text during scan

During a scan, i saw the window showing this odd text (please note the text to the right of the '51%'): "[__VSOs:*_MCODS_SCANTYPE_null defined]"


Maybe there's something wrong going on?

Version is:


Tell me if translation is needed (I think the format of the window is the same in all languages, so you can guess what's written)..

Re: Strange text during scan

Sorry for the delayed response, please clarify the following:

1.    When does this error message shows up? Does it occurs randomly (or) exact at 51%

2.    What is your default browser? Firefox (or) Internet Explorer?

3.    Click on Start> Run> Type temp> OK> Clear all the temporary files

Reboot the computer and check the scan status
