I would be a bit cautious of this program !

Ive never heard of it to date and Spfpedia says its Adware loaded.

This alone providing banners and ads is enough for me to advise removing it.

Appears real enough click here and click here. If you are concerned go for a free scan such as click here.

You could try an alternate site for the download but Cnet do have a good rating click here
