Thanks, this however was already set in my folder options, but 
nevertheless folder "installer" and its subfolders and files remained 
invisible.

What was additionally necessary was to deactivate the checkbox in folder 
options "hide protected system files".
Now the hidden folders and files are displayed and I can remove the 
Windows file protection.

I have put the presumably infected file "NewShortcut1.exe" temporarily 
into the trash bin and will now run a new scan to see what happens.

And thanks for that link. A first search for files that are listed in 
that link as connected with the NMap virus came up with no results. I 
will continue the search, but maybe it could also be possible that file 
"NewShortcut1.exe" is a non-infected regular file which was mistakenly 
indicated as infected by the virus scanner?
