How to open file with VIR extension?

VIR file description

It is not uncommon to have file extensions or formats for virus-infected files. These extensions are normally given to the file by your local antivirus so that it can deal with them. The .VIR format is used to show a file that is infected with a virus. Normally, an antivirus locates this file and appends this file extension to it if it has been infected.
The presence of the .VIR file format prevents the execution of the file and keeps the system safe. It is possible to run the file by changing the extension of the file, but this allows the virus to spread and it could potentially damage your system.
