Summary: standalone installer antiAntivirus complains about a hidden extension

It's a antivirus (Windows design) issue. As long GRASS uses x.yy.zzz naming scheme and Windows requires special extension (.exe .bat .com) to execute program, this issue can not be solved. Contact Your antivirus software author to exclude GRASS from double extension check or add GRASS files to that exclusion list manually.

Closing as invalid (not a GRASS bug).
