To control the hash value I installed the file checksum tool but dont get to execute its 4th step.

Start the tool from where you have saved the downloaded file.
Section "1) File to Verify": Insert the path and filename of the downloaded 
file. The [Browse] button will help to locate it with the Windows Explorer.
Section "2) Hashing Algorithm": Choose "SHA-256" or "MD5".
Section "3) File Checksum": Click on [Calculate Hash].
Section "4) Verify With": Paste the hash from the SHA256 / MD5 file you have 
First you have to open it and copy the hash value.

When I click on the downloaded file it starts to
setup !

I guess I miss something.

 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
- 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


Have fun
