So, I just purchased the Corsair K70 RGB keyboard and am simply trying to install some user created lighting profiles (or "import" them would be more correct) from the official Corsair website. However, instead of being straightforward .zip files like I expected I am seeing this key icon next to the files after download that I have never ever seen in my life. I have been using computers for well over a decade and have never come across this before.

Anyways, I simply can't install/import any profiles from Corsair and seeing this weird icon actually has me worried something is going on with my computer as a whole. I have installed both the latest firmware and software for the keyboard so it is 100% up to date.

Its like its asking me for some sort of supervisor PW? I am the only user on my PC, its a personal home computer. I have never set or been asked for a PW, I would be the administrator

My guess would an error in some script that Corsair wrote.

But then who knows? Chinese hackers?

It looks like Corsair may be saving their preference files with a .prf extension, prf for preferences, but .prf files are also the extension Microsoft uses for PICS Rules Files. Instead of double-clicking on the file, try to open the .prf file from instead the Corsair K70 application or move it whatever location that Corsair's program saves its PRF files to.
