Restart the computer in safe mode and try to run a full scan check the status .
Thank you for your quick response.
Well, I started a fresh scan, let it run overnight, and it completed. I let it run in 'background' mode (so I wouldn't be waiting for a response). Why it stopped at that point I mentioned, I guess, was that file was very, very large (a compressed e-mail folder or a large video).
All is well, thanks again.
(Oh, and msconfig is not a 'questionable program', but an important Windows tool! )
