If you are unsure about files, you can try uploading to VirusTotal (https://www.virustotal.com/) to see if any antiviruses detect them as malicious.

you mean avast detect them as "decompression bombs"  ?

- decompression bomb is just something that unpacks to an unusually big amount of data even though it's rather small (i.e. has a high compression ratio, for example). It's nothing to worry about, you are just informed that avast! will not try to unpack the archive (you may not even know that it's an archive, but it seems like it is) because it may take VERY long to process.
