Mcafee VirusScan hangs vista in winsxs folder at 84%


When I run a full system scan, it hangs at about 84% when the virus scan is scanning the winsxs folder.

Maybe some corrupted data as far as I read in the web.

The system stays hanged at "C:\Windows\ winsxs\amd64_mscorlib_b77a5c561934e089_6.0.6001.22..." and I have to unplug my computer.

How can I obtain more info about this error?

How can I turn around this error in order to get full system scan completed?

How can I repair/delete these files?

This is an old issue that, today, is still annoying...

Any resolution is appreciated,

Thanks and kind regards,

Nuno Magalhães.
