Default Re: secure file

you could proberly compress it to a rar and then chop of the extension thus making it a "file" to open you would have to write .rar on the end then uncompress

IDK if this is what you are looking for, but I have a Virtual Machine running on my PC. I can throw viruses in there to check and see if its infected etc... and if it is I can revert the state of the VM back to before I introduced the virus to the system.

I would say stick it on a CD/DVD if its that important, you can use compressed software like WINRAR or 7 ZIP and they would let you password protect the file but they wont be virus proof.
