Windows Defender is always notifying me about some malware but it can't delete it. I know that executable (it's a testing virus). So how can I isolate that, so Windows Defender can't find it anymore and if the virus really contains malware that it can't do anything to my computer? Shall I create an archive? Please help Thanks, K.NaN

  • The way to go is to create a password protected archive – ddnomad Mar 29 '17 at 14:44
  • OK, I though about that but I wasn't really sure if this is secure, thank you! – K.NaN Mar 29 '17 at 14:45

What I would use is a virtual machine with Windows Defender turned off. Overall, having a malicious executable on your actual PC is not a good idea and you should always do this kind of testing on a disposable virtual machine.
