Hi Guys,
Need some advice, I have a zip file with a software program on it, I need to
load the program, but my virus checkerNOD32  tells me that it contains a
Win323/trojanDropper VB.NAI trojan(when I try to unzip it).  How do I delete
the trojan so I can use the file
Your advice appreciated
Thanks
and Regards
Bob

Disable your antivirus, unzip the file, re-enable your anti-virus, scan the
file. Or delete the infected zip file and get a clean copy. Or upload the
file to www.virustotal.com to make sure it is not a false positive.

Thanks for the advice,
I disabled the Virus checker, unzipped the file and then re-enabled the
virus checker, NOD32, soon as I enabled it and scanned it, Bang straight
into Qarantine, would not clean it.  Unfortunately the Software is old and
all the downloads seem to have worms on them, sent the file to virustotal,
each virus checker picked up the trojan
