    There may be. I suggest downloading it from Canonical rather thana third party.

    Yes, the link/text in the URL IS ABSOLUTELY NOT UBUNTU'S DOWNLOAD LINK!!!

    You need to scan your PC for viruses and remove them.

    here is THE REAL link. http://releases.ubuntu.com//raring/u...sktop-i386.iso

    Is that an official mirror for Ubuntu downloads?

    Judging from the url displayed in the screenshot, you are not at the official download site. http://www.ubuntu.com/download/deskt...p&status=zeroc is the correct url for Ubuntu 13.04. This is the 64 bit version.

    If you keep getting redirected you may have a virus.

    Ha! Guess Bitdefender considers Ubuntu malware LOL

    Interesting that does come up on an official mirror.

    I would trust Bitdefender, If it found malware it's likely correct.

    Just download it from this link(choose your version 32 or 64 bit):

    http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

    doen't give any problems... just downloaded from here while logged into Win8, bitdefender had no issues....
