I opened Glarysoft website to download their startup manager. I found their own software updater released recently. I was excited to give it a try. Clicking on download, I got this:



What are your thoughts about this file? Is it really malicious?
This file is clean as it was analyzed by Avira.

upload the installer in Virus total (http://www.virustotal.com/) and check the results.
i remember before a malware was packed within glary utilities, so it may be a false positive in your case.

If we take a look at Avira's past, is quite posible that detection is FP or who knows, it might be a new virus !

Your screenshot shows that the website was blocked, as it has been categorised as malware.

I downloaded the file from the URL provided and here is the VirusTotal Report.

Edit: I didn't see the link earlier. My bad.

Note: The AV engine did not detect the installer as malware. It's a false positive by the Web Protection.

You can go to Avira Forum related to the incident of FP through Web Protection and may take the action immediately.
