Some Files my Antivirus programme can't scan

I have eight files on my system (Windows 7) that my Antivirus programme cannot scan.

They all begin with C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\SafeOS\SafeOS.Mount\Windows\.........

This is the first one

Are these a problem and do I need them? If not how do I dump them?
