Never heard of it, but McAfee Site Advisor gives it a Green Light

A few bad download sites.You must have picked one of the bad ones.Like rawprawn says either download McAfee Site Advisor or Wot any of those 2 will give you warnings of bad sites.Saying that did AVG Link scanner not warn you.click here click here I have my Link Scanner turned off on Avg and run WOT instead, you will get a bit of a conflict if you run both.

I am just trying WOT in IE, I think it offers more that Mc Afee. Nice one!

Funny enough it was Avi video convertor and I had tried the trial download and was about to buy the full program, however I am going to buy Cucusoft dvd and video convertoer now. And AVG did warn me before I stareted to uprade it. Thanks for all your replies.

Ooops, it wasn't AVi, it was a Youtube to Ipod download, and the virus was Trojan Horse Downlaoder.2lob.ahfy. I tried to download it again this mornibg and the same warning came up so I stopped going any further. Thanks
