Antivirus programs are unable to scan certain files for various reasons.

If there're password protected, you have to unprotect them prior to scanning.

If the files are system files, they're in use by Windows. You can overcome most of this by doing a manual scan in Safe Mode.

If the files are corrupted, Windows is unable to open them. These files should be removed as they no longer serve any purpose.
