    21 Identified registry keys 71 Components recognized
    3 Identified folders 0 Components ignored
    47 Identified files 71 New components

    Basically, it doesn't mean a lot...........it is your system summary.

    If your AV finds anything then it will warn you with a virus found message. You might like to boot into safe mode and run a complete system scan I normally check for AV updates every day, or the next time I use a particular machine (I have quite a few). I do a full scan once a week after updating..........it is a good habit to get into.

    I also periodically run Housecall, that is Trend Micro's online scanner.

    Hope that helps
