Every time I run a scan few of these weird pop-ups show up.

It says “Archive: <Location of The file>”

Underneath it says

“Password: <Place to input SOME password>”

and it gives me three buttons,

“OK”,

“Skip”

and

“Ignore All”.
Can somebody please tell me what they are,and what should I do. Also which password is it asking? And for what? Because it doesnt seem like it detected a virus

Thank you

Hello @Cevap, Welcome.

Please check if the 'Scan password protected archives' option is enabled.
If you do not know the password, the archive cannot be scanned.

Many vendors protect the resources of their programs this way.
