It's offered on MajorGeeks and CNET which to me would say it's safe.

BUT so many AV systems show up false positives through poor scanning engines - that's why I always stick to the best known and trusted ones.

Eset for a paid product.

Avast, MSE for free products.

Malwarebytes and Superantispyware for general malware.

There are others, but one can't try and/or use everything!

What prompted you to try that one?
