Hi Oldvet,

 

Please try the following to resolve the error:

 

1.  Change the location where the files are being saved to after scanning.  

 

2.  Temporarily disable any antivirus or firewall software that may be on your computer and then attempt to scan again.  Once the scan is completed and saved successfully, the protection software can be re-enabled.

 

3.  Launch the scanning program under an account with administrator privileges.

 

If you still receive the same error, please call or email us at one of the methods on the Contact Us page for further assistance.
