password protected files
« on: August 04, 2011, 11:24:00 PM »
I wanted to know what I should do with some files that were password protected. I can't scan them and I don't know what to do with them. How am i suppose to know if the files are safe if I can't scan them.
I would appreciate any suggestions.
Thank you
