Beware of download "Solidworks Uninstall Cleanup"

I downloaded this zip file from this forum.

 

Clicking on the icon unzipped it to reveal a .bat file.

 

RC on this icon revaled a very brief menu; I clicked on Open, expecting it to open in Notepad so I could see the batch code.

 

Instead it executed immediately and wiped SW.

 

The batch file opened for editing on a different box, so I now know what is in it.

 

A Pause statement in the batch code would have prevented the disaster.
