.com is a file compiled straight form assembly


was probably some memory virus

COM files are a thing of the past, and the only thing that still uses it nowadays is the Commandline Interpreter (Comman.com). COMs were widely used back in the day when DOS was "the" OS.


Like most people said already, if you spot a COM file in your computer, it's most likely a virus (although there are exceptions).
