Detect and Disinfect

How to Clean a Compressed File

You cannot automatically disinfect a file that is inside an archive file with the current versions of F-Secure products. You have to manually extract the archive, try to disinfect (or just delete) the infected file, and then repack it again.

Please note that no malware is known to infect straight from this kind of archive file. For such an infection to occur, the executable file would need to be extracted to a temporary location first, in which case the F-Secure Anti-Virus detects it before it can be launched.
