Question about IBM Computers & Internet
The scan is just a program reading the files and folders either in the computer or storage device
normally it is done by the security program ( windows fire wall) or what ever program you have installed
it reports on any problems found and waits for your decision
if you run a system check, that is different as it will rectify any program faults as it goes not files or folders
it is always advisable to scan usb sticks when installing as that is a favourite way that hackers get into a computer
although the usb stick may be in your control all the time , downloads from your own computer can transfer a problem via usb stick
As for your concern---scanning will not change any files or folders but will report on any faults to you

2) Install program and click Scan button.
3) Click the Fix Errors button when scan is completed.
4) Restart your computer.
Try that, it sounds like a registry error. If it doesn't help let me know.
