Hi.  I downloaded a file and then checked it online on virustotal before opening it.  It warned that it showed infected with trojan.pws.banker1.7976     on one of the 12 or so scans it does.  I run malware and it hasn't found anything.  Neither has McAfee.  I'd like to make sure I don't have this on my machine, though.  Any help is appreciated.  I think I should also find out how to check files BEFORE I download them, and would appreciate guidance on the right way I should have done this.  I also realize that maybe the site that reported it as containing a virus is the danger, but I don't know how to tell.  Thank you.
