    WinSCP Installation firing up automatically

    Hi all,
    My name is Paulo and this is my fisrt Post on tenforums.

    For a couple of weeks now i have been experiencing strange behaviors with the WinSCP installer being fired up out of the blue.
    I would like to have your support to see if i can fix this.

    System Information:
    OS Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit operating system.

    How to reproduce the problem:
    Whenever i am in folder browser dialog (does not matter the application) and i choose to create a new folder.
    The new folder appears, but once i type it's new name an press enter it will somehow start WinSCP installation (when i already have it installed).
    It will look for WinSCP.msi and will freeze the application i was working on.
    The only way to solve is by killing, in the task manager, the original application i was working on.
    I attached a screenshot of this behaviour.

    It will also be fired up every time i exit Visual Studio 2017!
    Can someone point me out to where i can fix this behavior?
