cleaning infected html, zip/rar files?


New Member
Hi everyone. I am transferring my files from my old laptop to my new Windows 8 laptop, then hopefully in the near future onto an external hard drive. However, Norton Internet Security identified a lot of them as being infected by Ramnit and other pleasant stuff. Most of them are html files, sometimes contained within zip/rar files that I created myself with a probably bad version of WinRar. Of course, Norton usually either deleted or quarantined them and only sometimes repaired them, but I'm wondering if it's possible to repair all of them--especially the html files, as those are what I really want to keep?

I'm planning to reset my laptop to factory settings and try to keep it clean of course, but if these files continue to be a problem, I'm really at a loss for what to do.
