    C:\Documents and Settings\***User\Desktop\hideippla_2.zip » ZIP » hideippla_2.exe - error - unknown compression method

    Is there a solution for this ?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    No AV scans all compression methods.

    As soon as that archive is opened or performs any kind of other action it is scanned then.

    Try it with an Eicar test file.
