File Extension EFW

File type: Renamed Zip or Executable File

About the EFW file type:

Invalid file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your Windows PC. It is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other slowdown issues.

The executable EXE or compressed ZIP file renamed by the Computer Associates Security Centre to contain the EFW file extension usually applies to the email attachments that have been scanned by the Computer Associates or CA antivirus software. The zipped EFW files could be accessed by modifying the file extension to ZIP and opening the said file using a decompression utility like the Stuffit Expander or the WinZip. The executable files could be run by directly altering the file extension to EXE and opening the given file. An EFW file could either be an EXE or a ZIP file. Among the applications associated with the EFW application are the WinRAR and the WinZip. When users employ the WinRAR, it puts them ahead with regards to compression by consistently generating archives that are smaller than the competition; thereby saving the users transmission costs and disk space. WinRAR provides users with comprehensive support for ZIP and RAR archives and is capable of unpacking Z, 7Z, JAR, ACE, UUE, CAB, LZH, ARJ, GZ, and B72 archives. It offers users a graphic interactive interface that employs a mouse and menus including a command line interface.
