1. Change the extension of the "setup.exe" to "setup.zip".
2. Open it in winrar or whatever you're using
3. You'll see two files in the archive...usually one named "install.exe" and one named "setup.exe".
4. The install.exe is evil. The setup.exe is the real deal
5. Extract only the "setup.exe" and replace/run it in the same folder as the old/renamed setup.exe
6. And there we go.

Has worked for me 9 out of 9 times when my virus scanner blocked executive of the setup due to IEhighutil.exe piggybagging on the archive.

Hope that helps. Worth checking if you suspect a malicious setup.exe

Nice! I didn't know that changing to zip would enable me to open it like an archive. I always used 7zip to extract the exe files.
