Unusual request.
You or your friend can scan the file after it is downloaded. Here is one online scan that you scan either one file or the entire computer.

You may be able to scan just one file with the antivirus and antispyware you already have on your computer. Just go to file and right click and see if that feature is available in the popup that opens.

Here is another link where you can submit up to a 10mb file and it will scan with l9 programs.

Hi Phuntsok,

Please follow buddy215's advice to see if the files are indeed viruses/malware related. I have removed the links so a member wouldn't click on your link and accidentally become infected.

As you have downloaded these, if you have questions about your computer being infected, please run the scans in this guide : Start here.

Good luck,
