Media player song titles are blue (well some are)

I am trying to save my Aunt's laptop from Morpheus virus hell. I want to reset it to factory settings so am trying to copy all files to a memory stick.

Some of my cousins music files are written in blue, rather than the usual black (I would say a random 10% seem to be blue).

Should I not copy these over? Any ideas why they are blue? They seem to play OK.

I have just been told it is because they are compressed files. I am presuming they are just as safe as others?

Oops. Using peer to peer to get music will get you more than you bargained for.
Personally I would not touch any of the music files as they might contain malware. Most of them won't, however, regardless of the colour of the files, some will.

can always scan the stick once youve sorted the laptop

Obviously you can scan all the by one.
