What is an .VI2 file?

.VI2 is Kaspersky Anti-Virus quarantine data

The vi2 file extension is related to Kaspersky Antivirus, one of the major anti-virus and computer security programs on market.

The vi2 file is possibly infected by some virus and the original file extension was renamed to vi2 to prevent it to be accidentally opened or executed by the users. Most likely used in some of the previous version of the program.


How to open:

Probably not meant to be accessed by the user. The file was renamed to prevent exactly that.

How to convert:

It is unlikely that this file type can be converted to anything else. You should not even attempt to do that in first place.
