I accidentally clicked on an exe when i tried downloading something. It has the admin thingy that popped up and i hit no. I thought i was ok. I went to play roblox like an hour later when it wouldn't launch. I opened up the folder and the icon for the launcher was gone and there was one with the actual logo as x.exe I scanned the launcher with avast and it detected it. I renamed the x.exe to robloxplayerlauncher.exe and its working fine. What happened?

Well, I don't have enough knowledge about this game but always download games from a trusted source, official web site.

Also it'd be a false positive.

Ok update. Sorry for late response. It happened again and i basicly cant even play roblox. It was uninstalled( I didn't uninstall). I couldn't install it again. It changed my shortcut to csgo also. I ran a scan with avast and mbam and nothing that was linked to it. Just file viruses I didn't run. It also made my computer freeze and make it so i would have to force shutdown to shutdown. I was trying to put files on an sd card and then windows explorer would crash. My desktop, taskbar, etc would become unresponsive. My computer would just be a mess. I ran a scan with rkill before avast and detected nothing malicious running. 

 

P.S. I got the download from roblox.com

 

Edit: Here is a video showing that I can't install roblox: http://www58.zippyshare.com/v/HLaScuDh/file.html
