Open a list of files on your computer. Hover your cursor over any one file. Right click once. A list of options will open in a window. Depending on what security programs you have, one or more will be listed in that list. If you recognize one of your security programs, hover your cursor over the security program and left click on it. It will then scan the file and give you a report. It usually only takes seconds depending on the size of the file.
When downloading a program or file, select save and note where the file is saved. Once the download is finished you can go to the location you saved it to and perform the scan(s) as described in the first paragraph.

I personally have created a folder in the folder where I file all my documents. I call it "software programs" I can then subdivide it by security programs, office programs etc. If I need to reinstall the program, I don't need to download it again. I can use that file. In addition, I generally purchase a disk with the program on it (I call them back-up disks, but others call them something else) in case something goes wrong or if I ever have to set up a new hard drive. I've used these disks on more than one occasion.

Where are the install programs for the programs you have now? I use firefox. I have it set to download to "My Documents/ My Downloads".
Did you try to scan an existing file so you would know if you got the procedure down?
