Hard to say ... do you have any tools/programs that would
normally allow you to handle those files? Do these still
work on them? Does avast's configuration or documentation
mention a way to check files of that type?


Cheers,
Tink

Question corrupted files

To be honest I do not no where this files are for.
Avast only gives the choice before scanning to scan tar gz files to or not
and of course scanning the whole system or som directories only
and after scanning with files like those which to bew corrupted
she gives the following option

1) Delete
2) Put in a other directory
3) Put in a virus chest

As avast home edition is frre of charge you do not get a manual

all the best
