Browser HiJack reported by Kaspersky

Hi,

When I install WinSCP 5.7.6 on my W7 pc, Kaspersky reports a browser hijack event at the end of the installation process. Is this normal. I'm thinking it could be a faslse/positive. This is the first time I have used FTP software.

I downloaded WinSCP from the official website, and checked the Checksums.

Thanks

WinSCP is registering for FTP protocol. Maybe that's what Kaspersky considers suspicious. WinSCP definitely does not try to register for HTTP.
