Scan it and Can it
When you download new software from the internet, make certain that its from a safe source, like WUGNET's Shareware Pick of the Week library, and that you disable your antivirus software when you actually install the new programs.
In many cases, its important to have your virus scanner active while you are downloading the software to insure that it doesn't contain any viruses or other malware. Downloading from WUGNET helps insure this. All of our software is virus-free.
When you actually go to install the software, its good to disable the scanner. It may in fact prevent your new software from actually installing correctly. If that happens, it may not run correctly, or at all. If you can disable your scanner while you install new software, your chances of successfully installing it increase by 50%.
