Did you use elevated privileges for the installation?  Windows TeX Live
installation does not need elevated privileges.

You may want to read Section 1.4 Security considerations

proceed to install GnuPG (GNU Privacy Guard) (without using tlmgr).  Gpg4win
<> is widely used, or
you can install GnuPG command-line tools for Windows from Msys2 or Cygwin64
or in a WSL linux distribution (if you have WSL you may find that TeX Live
in WSL is superior to the Windows CTAN version).

In addition to the current install-tl-windows.exe, CTAN mirrors should
provide install-tl-windows.exe.sha512 and install-tl-windows.exe.sha512.asc
needed to verify downloads using GnuPG.

For those who do run Windows, here's the URL for the antivirus you're using.

Checking downloads with GnuPG requires non-trivial extra work, but that is
the reality of the
internet we have today.
