Sorry, this is too vague... Who thinks it is a virus? Windows? If so... kill the virus scanner since it is wrongly accusing files to be a virus. The ISO download is 100% virus free. I have no doubts on that; as for your system I can not guarantee it ;) – Rinzwind Jul 1 '13 at 14:02
Disable the virus scanner then check yourself the ISO with md5 to verify that the source has not been compromised. – Emmanuel Jul 1 '13 at 14:18
From where did you download the iso files? – M.Tarun Jul 1 '13 at 14:38
What virus scanner are you using? – Jop V. Jul 1 '13 at 15:49
  1. Download the ISO file only from the Official Ubuntu site.

  2. Try disabling your anti-virus software until the download finishes since it may be wrongly detecting the ISO file as a virus.

I would check to make sure your download isn't infected by using a virus scanner. Always make sure you download the .iso file from the official website.
