Default Virus Scan is freezing on a certain object...

I have tried adaware, avg 2012, and windows defender. It will scan up until C:\ProgramData\Apple\Installer Cache\Safari 5.33.18.5\Safari.msi

Does anyone have any idea what it could be and how I can fix this?

I have uninstalled safari and that has not helped.

I have Vista

Thanks

Someone else may have to help me out here, but aren't msi files installation files?

If that is true, that file should be able to be deleted (especially now that the program in uninstalled) without causing any problems.

I fixed it myself. I unchecked hidden files and it came up. I deleted safari and scanned it again...no problems.
