Hi  everyone!

Sorry for the delayed response :s

wininst-12.0.exe is a legit Dropbox file, you can tell Bitdefender it is safe or even delete it. As James pointed it, .exe are Windows files and not needed on your Mac 🙂

We apologize for the confusion!

It seems that DB's automatic update took that file out.

Thank you Andrea for your response. I'm sure we all knew that said file wouldn't run on mac, but nevertheless it was odd to find it in your fine product.
