A lot of apps & programs are zipped in an installer package.
I hate when they embed other crap in the google tool bar & stuff.

I always unzip/de-compress the executable.exe so I can see what its comprised
of. Many times 7-zip is not strong enough to break it open so I found a titan
of an extractor Uniextract .

It can open most any installer executable so you can peruse the files inside
it for malware before blindly clicking on Install.

Many times I find that I don't need to use the installer.exe , as the file can operate as a stand alone.
This is all the stuff inside the little Java icon download & 7zip couldn't open it,
