Unnamed dll, requires extra software??

There was a long procedure to compile a .zip file full of drivers, then numerous d5Hash 'confirmations', and even an online virus scan powered by Norton. Finally the .zip was ready & save window opened.. and another save window opened on top of that for software from driverfinderpro.com called 'dfsetup.exe'.

My .zip file contained a single 44kb .dll named ".dll" (no name, just the extension) and a Readme.txt with the following. The Readme even makes clear that Semantic.gs takes no responsibility for damaging your computer.
*Note that the folder does NOT contain the Manager. I'm not looking for extra software.

Read-ME.txt:
You have just downloaded a folder containing: 1) Driver installation manager 2) Various system files to be used by the driver installation manager, in order to correctly install the most updated driver available. 3) READ-ME file Please do not try to install the files yourself.
