PSoC Creator hangs while loading on a machine having Kaspersky antivirus

Question: Why is PSoC Creator identified as threat in Kaspersky antivirus?

 

Answer:

 When we install PSoC Creator on an a computer with Windows XP with Kaspersky Antivirus running with the default settings, it seems to trigger threat detection in the AV.  After this the installation completes without any error, but the resulting PSoC Creator installation is corrupted.

Solution:

If we disable the antivirus before running the PSoC Creator installer, the installation will not be corrupted.  We can then Turn the Kaspersky antivirus ON after the installation.
