I have recently downloaded some Setup Files for various programs and scanned these setup files for viruses and Trojans. After going to trendmicro.com and running a virus scan, these files came up clean. However, is it possible the setup files can still contain malicious code which is dormant and only becomes activated after the install or setup file is launched?
Any thoughts or insights on this question will greatly be appreciated.
I look forward to hearing from someone regarding this question.
