Scanning Compressed Files Questions

I have a few questions regarding VirusScan 8700 and compressed files.

First, I'm encountering a problem with an Event ID 1051 and files with a  .zip or .xap (Microsoft Silverlight) extension.  I am unfamiliar with .xap, but I know .zip does not always require a password to be set.  VirusScan still seems to sometimes have trouble scanning these files.

Second, is it possible to deal with these filetypes without the use of a whitelist (especially for zip) as described here?

Finally, is it possible to have VirusScan scan recursive zip files?

Thank you.
