How-To Extract EXE Files

come with extra software you don't need. A lot of times preventing the installation of this "bloatware" is impossible. When you click that single ".exe" or ".msi" file the installation process automatically throws the unnecessary software on your computer no matter what.

How-To extract an .exe file onto your desktop and look at its contents
