Virus scan on downloads

Having found 9 virus`s on my pc which I think came from downloads should I save these to a folder before installling them and run a NAV check and then install them. A virus check found them and dealt with them but that was after the event and I would prefer preventive medicine. OS is XP Home SP2.Meshuga.

made myself clear, it`s future downloads I`m referring to, Meshuga.

I save all my downloads to a folder in My Documents.

Apart from anything else, this saves having to download again if you need to uninstall then reinstall the program.

I knew you`d have the answer for me. Many thanks and regards. Meshuga.
