Alright, hopefully there are computer wizards somewhere in this site. I've yet to see them. >~<

Um... ok. So I've downloaded a file and I was suspicious of it so I scanned it on Jotti and Virustotal. They both picked up :

Suspicious:W32/Malware!Gemini
DroppedWin32.Worm.Stration.EM
VIPRE.Suspicious
Worm.Win32.Malware.gen (suspicious)

I haven't run the .exe file yet, and all I know is that these little buggers infect the computer if the program is executed. But what do these things do?

Delete it?
If you delete, you never have to open it.
Or somehow Quarantine it..

Well if what you downloaded was illegal it may contain a crack and such which makes it "suspicious" to virus scanners.

So from that information I really can't tell. Also, you should post this in the Tech Help thread.
