    Call me paranoid, LOL, but I like to see .exe files that are being distributed even by DigitalRiver to remain as the original name.

    For the Office 2010 Pro Plus the renamed the file from;

    en_office_professional_plus_2010_x86_515486.exe

    To this;

    X16-32250.exe

    Does anyone know why?

    So I did a check at the MSDN to look at the hash on it and this is what they have;

    SHA1: 0E1840BF1AA81077692AF651BEFB75648CD9FAA7

    0e1840bf1aa81077692af651befb75648cd9faa7 - (mine)

    ISO/CRC: 986EB4A1

    986eb4a1 - (mine)

    The two that say (mine) is what came back for me on my X16-32250.exe file which is the same, but I'd still like to know why the change in name?

    THANKS

    ummm....who cares?????????? :rolleyes:

    If it's from DigitalRiver it's trust worthy even if it is called msoffice2010virus.exe

    'Naming Convention' And 'Security', that's why it's not suppose to be changed.

    If we were talking about Winzip that would be a different story.

    I guess someone at Digital River seems to think otherwise about these two.
