Avira Antivirus picked all of them up on my machine ...

@ENZO, if you saved the last two zip files, then right clicked on the folder to scan with Avira.... it detected them too

That's the problem, Jacee. The file is then allready downloaded and on your HD, so if you don't have suspicion to a zip-file or a folder containing a zipfile, you will never check it. The software must detect it by itself!

6 with Avast here , seems reasonable enough to me , but 8 would be better . So are we saying Avira is better than avast for windows 7 .
