VirusScan stops at 56% at a "Junk" folder on my computer

Every time I run a Full Scan on my computer, the scanner stops at 56% at a Junk Folder inside a Local Folders subfolder somewhere within AppData. I don't know what to do.

Hi luckyjimmy10,

Normally scan gets frozen on the .dll , .cab or any compressed folders/ Files.

Can you please tell me the name of the program or file with the extension on which the scan freezes.?

You can also try to run a McAfee quick Clean on the computer once.

Restart the computer and try to perform a scan..

I think its one of my email programs (Windows Mail) because it freezes at a Junk Folder.. and the only Path that leads to a Junk folder is C:\Users\Jimmy\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail\Local Folders\Junk E-mail

the only file in there is winmail.fol

Anything in the junk email folder? Maybe there is a attachment to 1 of the emails that the scan baulks at.
