Geez man.. Don't u check what u download before u do it? .. I got the friendly link too.. But you can easily see that it was an application.. Good online behaviour is the best cure of viruses ..

you should not download executables over messengers even if it is from your 'friend' because it might indeed be a virus that is doing it

i think most of us are smart enough to know it's an application

i dl'd it, but i never opened, i just ran a virus scan on it to see if it could be detected and avast didn't detect a virus on it

I usually look at the filename first, if I'm unsure, I might download it but scan it with Antivir, and sometimes even I open task manager before I run the program (if I decide to run it), just in case I need to close it
