From a scientific  point of view it is impossible to prove the absence of a virus. However it is highly unlikely that the file contains a virus because:
- the file you got was never on a MSWindows platform before you received it. (if you downloaded it from sourceforge) The package is completely produced on, and uploaded from, a GNU/Linux environment.
- the file you mentioned is at least downloaded 10 times. There are no other reports of viruses.

It looks as if some process on your computer is interacting with the installation. This might be Panda and I guess point 4 is the clue for all the issues.

BTW, it is not necessary to have administrator rights to install/uninstall the package if your are the only user of PSPP on that computer.


Have fun
