Scasnning an Install.exe

Does that work? I have a “Setup.exe” file that scans as clean but generates a malware catch when I run it.

Which is correct?

Any help appreciated.

I am not 100% sure on this but in my tests with comodo on install exe files they do not unpack when scanned. This means that if the install.exe is not blacklisted it will find nothing but when you run the install.exe and it extracts the files that are packed inside it they get scanned during the extraction/execution of the files. That is why you are seeing a clean exe and then malware catch upon running it.

OK thanks for that. Makes sense, and explains what happened with me
