Hi.

I just downloaded a file iTuner install and when it finished explorer warned me that the file was not downloaded often and it may be harmful.

I know that this is a generic warning, so I scanned it with MSE and 60 files were scanned with no harmful ones found... but I'm not sure if it is safe. I tried to find the install file on CNET or some reputable known site, and could not.

Is there a way for me to know that it's safe before installing it?

Well, I am not patient I suppose :)

I googled a bunch of things, can't find anything to actually scan the file (kapersky is down), but I checked www.siteadvisor.com (apparently a Mcafee site) that produced this report.

I will install it now and hopefully it doesn't crash my computer :whistling:

Hello and welcome to Geekstogo!

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help.

It's indeed just a generic response. If you downloaded the file from the official website (and you said you did), then there is nothing to worry about. :thumbsup:
