100% ceretain it is NOT GOOD. When it trys to access the computer at any time (Avast doesn't need it) It will then examine and download Trojan Vundo(Virtuemunde) which in itself has a trojan downloader, Many people simply cannot get rid of this (Safemode useless) because it needs advanced knowledge to do so as the new version can alter many anti malware programmes reg cleaner for the .dll's are also useless against it, as they return perhaps under another. For most the best option is a re-install - again this is a possible waste of time because your ip is now known and cvontinuous attempts w
It is made by a well trusted anti-virus company and is probably the safest file out there, It's safe and in no way dangerous.
