Hi Suey,
           That's not daft lass.  If you click on Run then windows will open the file
immediately.  If the file has a virus you will install that as well.  Only click run if
you trust the site. ( or course you will be safe in this instance because AVG will
make sure that their site is protected from infection )
            Normally when you download a file you should save it to a folder such
as downloads or whatever name you want to call it. When the download is complete
then go to the folder find the downloaded file and  RIGHT click on it. A menu will appear
and you can select your Anti virus programme to run a check on it. It only takes a few seconds. this will tell you if a virus is present in the file. If there is then DO NOT open it.
   Do the same with the Anti Spyware programme.

     I do this for all files that I download ( even AVG)    If its clean then double left click and
the file will open and install. Just get into the habit

    Any doubts then please scream,
Tomkin ;D ;D ;D
