    I have downloaded a file and scanned with panda internet security.
    It identified malware in the file but, did not disinfect it.
    What I need to do to open it?

    Thank you.

    So let me understand you clearer. You have a file with a virus/malware in but you think its logical to open it because your AV hasnt disinfected it…

    If the file has been detected as infected then its integrity is compromised and as such it can’t be very useful unless you want to see the aftermath that particular malware causes for “educational purposes”.
    What file is it? Get it from another more reliable source if you can otherwise stay well clear.

    I have lost my CD which has CCNA videos by Todd Lammle.
    So, I have dowloaded the CCNA videos from Internet as a rar file.
    Unfortunately, I have found only one weblink to download.

    Thank you.

    Sounds like warez to me. If I were you I would delete the file you downloaded and find a legimate source to download/purchase it from.

    If you have your original purchase details, you should be able to buy replacement media fairly cheaply.
    Downloads of such material are invariably illegal.
    We don’t support illegal activities here

    I understand your concern. I will not post any query again which is related to illegal activities . Let us delete this thread.

    I will look for alternative solution.

    Thank you.
