Disinfecting infected archives in version 6 of F-PROT Antivirus

Scanning multiple levels of archives will take much longer time than its usual scanning speed. Please note that F-PROT Antivirus does not disinfect infected archives automatically but only quarantines them.

To disinfect infected archives, first you must decompress them. Then, scan the folders individually. Do the following:

  1. Disable the automatic file system protection so that it will not interfere with the decompression process.
  2. Under Quarantine, select Items. From this window, click the particular archive you would like to disinfect and then click Restore. Select a location where you want to restore the archive and click Save.

    Note: If the archive is not stored in quarantine, please skip steps 1 & 2.

  3. Locate the archive and decompress it using an archive utility e.g. Winzip, PKZIP* and others.
  4. Right-click the file or folder and select Scan with F-PROT Antivirus to scan for infections.
  5. When scan is completed, compress the files again.
  6. Remember to enable the automatic file system protection after the manual scan!
