Windows 7: Could I Be Infected? Suspicious Error Message From Program

Could I Be Infected? Suspicious Error Message From Program

So earlier today I heard a song in a Youtube video that I wanted to find the name of so that led me to this software called: Tunatic.

After downloaded the setup file, I ran it but it gave an error: runtime error 216. The setup then closed.

Something about the error message didn't look like. It didn't look real. I googled the error message and found out that is was linked to a virus. Now I'm scared.

I did a quick scan using MalwareBytes and Microsoft Secrutiy Essentials and found nothing. I am currently doing a full scan using MalwareBytes.

Maybe the error message is an actual error but from what I found on Google, I was only able to find it being linked to a virus and nothing else.

So what do you think? Am I just worrying too much? Do you know of another cause for runtime error 216?
