See what you mean, I don't know who or what they are trying to protect
here.  I have never seen a CAPTCHA as part of an installer before.  If
they think that they are protecting users from remote attackers who may
use the package to remove or disabling anti-virus then they are rather
ignorant of the real world, those types have other ways already
established to cripple an anti-virus that do not require this tool.
Indeed any really successful attemt to compromise a system would leave
the end use unaware of a problem.
