Dropper

I have just run an anti-trojan programme which found and removed Win95.Rekoj.940. A google search tells me that this is a "dropper". Could anyone explain what a "dropper" is in laymans terms as I haven't found a really satisfactory explanation that I fully understand. Thanks.

Dropper: In viruses and trojans, the dropper is the part of the program that installs the hostile code onto the system.
