    Uhh okay so I accidentally downloaded a zip file containing trojan malware from BHW (VT says 5/47) but I haven't clicked on the .exe file yet so I don't suppose it has infected my computer yet?
    Anyway, I tried googling and most sites said to do a scan, so I used Windows mrt to scan and nothing came up so I'm kinda lost at what to do now
    Do I just press 'delete' to delete the file from the Recycle Bin? I think malware stuffs are kinda sticky and won't get deleted that easily right?

    Anyway sorry for asking such a noob question but I figured that there might be lots of tech experts here who can help me out so sorry again!

    Edit: I can't post links yet but it's /blackhat-seo/member-downloads/589083-get-instaget-pro-bot.html
    My internet was loading really slow so the VT report on the page hasn't finished loading when I downloaded it, hence I didn't notice the trojan stuffs...... (yeah its totally my fault so now I'm just trying to get rid of the file)
    My vt scan says /en/file/b55fb40b60f935f4415eb255c8e2af7f482d50e2d12fdf5edf9db1744bef1885/analysis/
    5/47 so I doubt it's just a false positive...

    Just delete the file and scan your computer using a virus scanner and you're good to go. Use McAfee, Norton or Kaspersky to clean you computer from malware.

    If you haven't execute the .exe, then just delete it.

    if your AV found it, just Delete it or Quarantine the file,-SAFE.
    if you AV doesn't find you would either never know, or it may would be to late.
    there is also software where you open files safely (Container) on you PC , but I have got never the experience with that,- i switched to MAC before that!!

    all the best

    Good case: Also take into consideration that those 5/47, couldn't be very relevant, the antivirus programs are also programs, so ... it's nothing human to check. I remember I've made a simple program with a wrong loop that just went crazy and the antivirus found it as a virus, and it was blocking me after compiling.

    "Bad" case: Yes, it could be a virus in that file. BUT if you haven't opened it yet, no worries, you are not infected. You should be able to delete it just like any other file.

    Conclusion: If you haven't opened the file, you can still try it out. Try sandbox, it's a program which let's run other programs, but everything is happening within it, so your explorer.exe file or something else will not get infected even if the virus wants that.

    Post the link here if you've downloaded it from BHW, and also check if he has on his thread 5/47 from virustotal, if yes, he kind of "warned" you. If not, ask him why you got 5/47.

    Checked it, nothing crazy there. Just delete the file, don't worry.
    It's nothing 'sticky'.
    Do as you already mentioned (delete + empty bin)

    Alright, thanks guys. I deleted the file and did some scans with a few AV programs and the results are clean. Got scared over nothing, it seems.
    Usually I'm pretty careful about stuffs like this, I guess surfing the internet at midnight when you're all burned out is not quite a good idea.....
    Thanks again. Mods can close this thread now.
