    One user from slovak forum asked me to remove malware. I recommended him ComboFix after HijackThis. ComboFix made own backup. How can I secure unzip this file? There are regedit.com.vir and taskmgr.com.vir

    I want to send these files to virustotal and to ESET - samples.

    They are already secured by their extension vir . It is non-executable so it will not hurt your computer at all . Just submit them as regular files

    No , not necessary . Just submit them with their current vir extension . This way you'll not be able to execute the file(s) . AV programs can read the file even with that extension.


    P.S. May I ask you something ? Can you please send me these two files via email if you have them . If you agree , I'll send you a PM with appropriate email . Thanks

    Thanks, I send it to virustotal and no antivirus found malware. So, I send it to ESET.
