Password protected files
my antivirus did a scan and was unable to scan two files 
File: C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\32\lib\python2.7\test\test_zipfile.pyc        73kb

File: C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\32\lib\python2.7\test\test_zipfile.pyo        73kb

is this cause for concern ?
I do not think there is any concern. Why your AV is not able to scan, I do not know. The files do not have any different permissions to any of the other files.

Run the files through an on-line scanner such as VirusTotal. You get a result like this screenshot: Nothing found.
*.pyc and *.pyo are both generated on the fly when their source code is executed in certain ways. Nothing to worry about (and if you erase them they will come backSmile).
thanks to both of you
