Virus infected installation file icon

4 posts in this topic

After downloading any software, the software icon appears like .exe fiel icon. noy like setup.exe icon. While i double click the icon to install the software kaspersky detect Riskware:Hidden install. If i press deny.......then sometimes KIS asks to delete it or shows object not found......then asks to roll back system change. However, install carries on at the same time. And after installation icon became ok. What is the prob? My all installation file icon creates the same prob. I scanned my computer thoroughly........but at that time KIS couldn't find any infection.
