    I downloaded it from download.com, and while the installation progress, Windows Defender alerted and removed the threat. (avast! 5 didn't detect it, so I sent the setup file to the avast! team)

    Here's the VT link (26/40):
    ~VirusTotal link removed per Policy.~

    The download page of the fake MPC: -http://download.cnet.com/Media-Player-Classic/3000-2139_4-10518778.html-

    ... with a five-stars rating by an editor and nice comments by users. LOL

    Btw, I've figured that the setup file is apparently different from the original MPC v6.4.9 setup file.

    Shame on download.com! From now on I'll never ever take stuff from download sites, especially from the ones hosting setup files in their own servers.
