This is a false positive by the Antivirus Program. Initially run Windows Update (www.update.microsoft.com ) and apply all Important and optional updates (excluding language packs) available for your system. When installation is completed, shut down (do not restart it) the computer. Upon booting up check for Windows Updates again, apply if any. Also make sure antivirus program database is updated to its latest release. If you don’t feel comfortable to temporary disable antivirus protection program, you can exclude a folder (where will save the installation file) or the installation file from computer’s antivirus program scanning route.

I have a similar problem but seemingly unable to be resolved by updates. Firstly Windows 10 warned that Inpixio Photo Clip is an unknown programme and I have to click ”Run anyway” to continue. Next my Norton Internet Security warned that it is a malware. If I choose to ignore and run the installation, the setup gave me a series of missing files dialogues and refuse to setup.
What should I do?

Do you also have the link to the installation file for Photo Clip 7? I have the newer software affected by the virus message
If using any Norton program that is anti-virus or malware related when installing InPixio you must right-click on the InPixio installation file then click on File Insight. Then in the Norton program which is the File Insight you just click on Trust the software and then you’ll be fine.
Thank you very much for this comment Indy Harley!
I have Avast and this is blocking my install – any suggestions please!
