    Because it thinks that the file is corrupt. Most likely because of the naming convention of that exe, it thinks it has two extensions
    .sfx .exe

    thanks for the reply. I tried downloading same file on a windows 7 machine connected to a different internet service and got the same "corrupt" message in Virustotal.
