Pagefile.sys will always be locked. They are not usually harmful.

Files that are in use by the system are not scanned in NOD32 file scanner. Instead they are checked by the process scanner. This is normal and c:\pagefile.sys is not a virus. Make sure that you go into deep file scan instead of simple on demand as this cranks up all the heuristics and makes it scan more things.
