Avast Free Antivirus says the file has a IDP.Genericmalware and moved it promptly to the virus vault, where setup-x86_64.exeis kept "prisoner". I might ask Avast to release it and let it run, butI'm afraid of inflicting damages to my computer. A previous version ofsetup-x86_64.exe had the same fate, this time because of IDP.ALEXA.52.
