    I know that av sw like Norton AV, AVG can detect
    virus and suspicious files from zipped file.

    How they can detect these from zipped file? I also like to know if they are remove the infected files from such zipped file.

    and about password protected zipped file.

    Can anybody give his/her idea?

    and what about password protected zipped file. I guess these AV will not be able to delete infected files.
