For peace of mind I suggest checking that the files in tlpkg/tlperl/bin are
identical to "known good" versions (e.g., copy the files to non-Windows
machine and compare with a freshly downloaded versions there). You should
be able to
get them directly from CTAN:systems/texlive/tlnet/tlpkg/tlperl/bin/
"In the unlikely occurrence of a false positive we would kindly ask for your
help and send the file to our virus lab using the quarantine functionality
Doing this would be a service to other TL users who might encounter the same

in my windows 7 environnement I tried to install Texlive from Tug.org.
When starting install-tl-advanced, the terminal started but I got the
Virus message from Avira. Since reading the texlive mailing list for
quite some time, I cannot recall such a finding. Am I correct and what
shall I do?
I have Zonealarm and Avira Premium installed and only the latter shows
this Virus message.
