The problem to fix, in this, case is the idea that software comes from anywhere other than your distro's repository. This is one of the differences in Linux that is better left the way it is. With the loads of idiots out there willing to install malware on their systems from social engineering sites it is better to retrain the user than to continue old habits. Your complaint may be valid but certainly not in this case. The Windows way of installing software is foolish and dangerous, not something to be emulated. But then maybe you're an MS troll and that's why you demand this.
