Vsphere - Virus

I am trying to connect to a VMware ESXi 6.0.0 - Build 2494585 host using Vsphere Client and when I try to connect to the host I get the following error and symantec also shows that a virus is trying to run.  Any thoughts?

it is 99% probable that this is a false positive whitelist the file

I do not have that file on *ANY* of my workstations, that Access VMware vSphere 3.5 - 6.x.

(Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, Windows 2008, Windows 2012).

I suggest you clean and disinfect your computer and then re-try.

The error you are getting is a generic error, caused when .NET framework is damaged, it's also rather suspicious, that the file is located in a temporary directory.

If you disable Anti-Virus, does the client connect ?

100% my computer is clean and virus free....  I reinstalled Vsphere and got the following.

I clicked IGNORE and got this message

Then this message, I clicked OK and then put in my credentials and it allowed me access.... How to I avoid all of this in the future - Any idea why this is happening?

Click Ignore on the certificate, or purchase a certificate which matches the FQDN of the server, or create a certificate yourself, self-sign with a known CA.
