Hi,

Recently, I backed up the data on my desktop hard drives to an external Seagate hard drive. After the backup, I ran Quick Heal antivirus on the Seagate drive and received the following Scan Report:

J:\disk 1\Mydox_old\pix\party.zip/party/001.jpg
Detected: "JPEG/IFrame.RP"
File is skipped

J:\disk 1\Mydox_old\pix\party.zip
File is skipped

J:\disk 3\partition 1\desk\Scrivener\Scrivener_1.6.1.rar/Scrivener_1.6.1\Keygen-Lz0.rar/Keygen-Lz0\GenericKeygen.exe
Detected: "Hacktool.Keygen"
File is skipped

J:\disk 3\partition 1\desk\Scrivener\Scrivener_1.6.1.rar
File is skipped

If I understood right, two threats were detected in two individual files of the following two ZIP/RAR files: party.zip and Scrivener_1.6.1.rar

However, Quick Heal does not seem to have repaired or deleted the two affected files. Is it safe for me to keep the data as is? If not, should I delete the two affected files or do I need to delete the complete ZIP/RAR containing the affected files as well? Please advise.

so what is this Quick Heal some free software or what ???
if you do not know what a keygen is then why are you downloading them generally they are flagged up by antivirus because they are workarounds for stolen software.

Frankly, I don't remember ever downloading keygen. These files have been lying on my hard drive for ages..over ten years now. But I don't recall ever using the Scrivener software. What about the "001.jpg" file in party.zip? It's a picture clicked from my cellphone. Would deleting these individual files resolve the "threat" or do I need to scan or run something else?

By the way, I purchased Quick Heal Pro antivirus about a fortnight ago. So it's genuine!
