May something intresting to do for you. Run Kaspersky with "delete all Viruses" and than run Avast to see what Virus Kaspersky misses. Do it with vet the same way.

Wow!  I'm impressed.  I'm too scared to load viruses on my machine then run AV to see what it catches.  I trust the labs for that.  
The wind in the wires made a tattletale sound
And a wave broke over the railing
And every man knew, as the Captain did, too,
T'was the witch of November come stealing.

well, i never excecute them !  ;)

There mostly zipped, and this way being harmless untill unpacked (wich i never do).

I just put them on a cd to do some scanning/testing with different programs. It's like a hobby to me.

some people collect post stamps, some collect virrii, lol.
