personally, i dont care what you want me to do or dont do. i just see about 10 virus related threads on gnutella about the same files. i'm trying to convince people not to download executables off of peer to peer thinking that its a good way to download software.
i bet i could distribute a fake software package on peer to peer after you extracted it and ran the setup.exe, i could make a message box popup and say "HEY THIS ISNT A VIRUS BUT COULD OF". you know i have spare time on my hands, so i could very easily do so
