In certain circumstances, Auto-Protect or scheduled scans may detect previously quarantined files (DWH*.tmp) in the %temp% folder on Windows Vista, Windows 7, or later.
This problem can occur in the following cases:
If the %temp% folder has Content Indexing turned on.
To disable Content Indexing on the %temp% folder
If an Explorer window has the %temp% folder open.
To prevent this from happening, close the Explorer window.
If other file monitors on the computer are checking the %temp% folder very actively while a Defwatch scan is running.
