How to rid setup applications of any viruses

I wanted to install a program onto my computer, but I ran VirusTotal - a free virus checking site on chrome - on the setup application to make sure of an malaware. When the results came in, they weren't pretty. Are their any programs that can rid setup applications of any viruses?

It is very unlikely that you will be able to remove the virus from this program. I wouldn't take a chance on it. I'm guessing that it is a free program. But although you didn't pay any money up front for this program, you will pay heavily if you install the program.

Was it a virus or bundled install with other software often free stuff has stuff with it to help pay for their work

According to VirusTotal, viruses were detected. I assume it takes mad programming skills to get the results I want? For now, the free program will never see access to my start menu till I can extract all the #### from it. If only there were a program where I could press one button, and viruses go bye bye. My immature mind can only take me so far.

I found the file with all the programming. If only I could upload it to you guys to see what kind of language it is, but the site is experiencing errors.

You could try extracting the contents from the .exe with Uniextractor, but it's not guaranteed that will work. There's this too. Request Rejected

Most Viruses ever seen?
I'm just curious, what's the most viruses/malware anyone has ever seen on a PC? The most I ever saw was about a year ago cleaning up a laptop from my wife's brother that he let the kids use for about 1 1/2 years until it would barely run. I used AVG and it deleted 437 viruses/malware items...
