!!*subject header title should read,
“OneNote 2020" *install* never completed” (not “OneNote 2020" *download* never completed). I can edit the question but not the subject header above)
I tried to install "OneNote 2020" (a “free” upgrade to OneNote 2010 which I have) from a site that seemed legitimately Microsoft and maintained that the program would work on Windows 7.
When the downloaded .exe (6MB) kept saying it would be finished “in a moment” but never completed -- in fact, the colour on the white 15 cm bar never moved more than about 0.5 cm, I got anxious, imagining all my information being sucked out, or garbled, or something, and pushed CTRL-ALT-DEL and asked the Task Manager to terminate all the processes I could see that might have to do with it, despite the dire warnings about system instability...
Then I turned off the computer, praying that it would start again when I booted it.
When I did, the little pop-up Kaspersky box let me know that something was wrong (I can’t remember the language) and as I follow through saw that flagged with the “slippery floor icon (exclamation in yellow triangle) in my /downloads, there was something called "cnet_ViewerSetup_exe.exe" which K’y flagged as potentially dangerous.
When this warning is triggered by Kaspersky, after such an incident with a Microsoft upgrade, what should one do? I let Kaspersky “resolve” the matter and chose to delete the files … But I’m not sure as there is **no download date** attached to the CNET .exe files whether they have anything to do with my bad experience with Microsoft. A download date, or activation date, or any kind of date would help in this circumstance.
(By the way, I went to the “more info” place on the internet and it says that if a user has downloaded this soft of file, it is harmless. But I deleted everything -- via Kaspersky anyway. Is it harmless to try again to download from
I tried URL Void to check for safety but got a very ambiguous vague response. … which made me nervous as this is supposed to be Microsoft.
ps Microsoft just popped up asking whether I wanted to install … so, it’s still there.
