I tried to send an infected file named message.scr to virustotal.
I used the browse box 1st.
It reported the file size as 0 zero , and no virus found for each AV client
testing.
The file is 32KB.


I also tried to send it as an email attachment to scan@virustotal.com ,
having set security levels low, but an error message came up saying that
some files could not be found, send anyway?

I have to deactivate my anti-virus in order to send it to VT,
otherwise I may get a 0 byte file.    Did you right click(and check
properties) on the .scr file to ensure it was actually downloaded and
not stopped by the AV program?   I've also had 0 byte files that
way.   Just don't double click on it with the AV program off :0)

OK, I got it to work, but I had to disable AVG resident and outgoing email,
and I had to use IE, Firefox generated the error message previously
mentioned.

Ozzy had a good answer and there other is the File Handle is held open by the OS
or the
malware and thus it can't be sent via email or uploaded to Virus Total and thus
a Zero Byte
file.
