Self-extracting FilesA self-extracting file decompresses part of itself into one or more parts when executed. Software authors and others often use this file type to transmit files and software via the Internet since the compressed files conserve disk space and reduce download time. Some anti-virus products may not search self-extracting file components. To scan these components, you must first extract the files and then scan them.
