To analyze malware files we are using virtual machine and virtual box but some of malware detect the environment and will not do its work properly.

I want to know how to test malware files with out using virtual environment.

Can i use my host system for testing malware files? If i use host machine for malware testing, how to recover it after infection? Is it possible or not, otherwise give me some idea how can i do this?

Thanks in advance.

Check out the answers in the following, similar, question:
Analysing malware in a real environment (non-virtual environment)

TL;DR: Check out Faronics Depp Freeze for example.
I recommend reading the answers as a whole.

In addition, read the answers to the following question on Security.SE:
Can i get 100% protection from virus by using Deep Freeze?


Can i use my host system for testing malware files?

This is highly not recommended. Unless this is a physical machine dedicated to run malware samples and you have the means to restore the original state of the machine.

Read about anti-anti evasion techniques and how to harden your virtual amchine against VM-aware malware samples, there are tons of articles online.

For example:
Making Virtualbox nearly undetectable
Hardening Cuckoo Sandbox against VM aware malware

Use KVM. Most of the time malwares will try to detect VMWare and Virtualbox based artifacts.
