    Cheers, liking keeping the virus as a virtual pet! Ok, let me get serious here, if I extract the contents with 7-Zip and then scan it with avast or MBAM, will that work or do some files (e.g. The Virus) remain in the ISO rather than the extracted folder. Basically, if I use a tool like WinRAR or 7-Zip to extract then scan with an anti-virus, will that work?

    WHS, I don't think that virus total can scan a file of 3.7 gigs.

    I have access to another PC but do not have the permission to download and install software such as .exe downloads or software like rufus that need administrator permission.
    Wish I could buy another PC but I don't has thy moneh.

    Calculate the MD5 or SHA1 verification value of the ISO. Compare it to the same ISO downloaded by someone else. If they are the same, you've got a good ISO.

    Download Microsoft File Checksum Integrity Verifier from Official Microsoft Download Center

    I have NO IDEA what you are talking about so I am just going to carry on with mah life. I don't want to do zen dodgy stuff and how would I compare it to someone else's when they wouldn't allow me to have access to their PC. So the question remains.

    That is a good point. I think 128MB is the max.

    You can resort to the known AV scanners. E.g. this one: Error: Page Not Found - Symantec Corp.

    Edit: Ignore the "Page not found".
