    Question How to ensure downloaded software security?

    Hello,
    I always try to run the download .exe / installation files in a virtual environment or sandbox like to limit as much as possible - within my limited technical knowledge - trojan or virus risks.
    What other security methods you use and would recommend to get closer to 100% safety of downloaded applications?
    Thanks!

    I confirm virustotal is good, there are many other websites. It is possible to run the software on a virtual machine
