Virus Scan - automated scan of bz2 using all 8GB RAM?

My weekly automated full scan is using all available RAM when scanning bz2 archives - is this a known issue, and is there a temporary solution as there is no way to prevent Virus Scan from scanning specific file types.

I'm attaching images of Virus Scan and also Task Manager showing the excessive memory consumption while scanning a BZ2 file (obtained from - an open source media player).

Needless to say the PC runs very slowly when it is deprived of all available memory, and I'm assuming this is not intended behaviour of Virus Scan but nobody seems to have reported it before.
