During the install of git on windows (using latest version - 2.6.3) I get 
an error that reads as:
C:\Program Files\Git\usr\bin\file.exe

An error occurred while trying to rename a file in the destination 

MoveFile failed; code 5.

Access is denied.

Click Retry to try again, Ignore to skip this file (not recommended), or 
Abort to cancel installation.
Abort   Retry   Ignore   

Abort cancels the install; retry tries again - it will fail again; and 
ignore simply continues.  When I go with ignore; the install finishes OK 
and basic git commands seem to work OK.

I'm fairly certain this error due to my workplace's antivirus.  I tried 
simply creating an empty file named file.exe and it failed to do so.  I 
have a file.exe already on my system from cygwin and when i try to run it i 
get a permission denied.

Looking at the manual for file (http://linux.die.net/man/1/file) it gives 
information on a file; such as last modification, type of file etc.

Finally; my question - are there any side affects that I should be aware of 
if my system is missing file.exe?
